Data on Philanthropy – by us, for us – Making use of evidence for good

Philea, in collaboration with the European Research Network On Philanthropy (ERNOP), will host a webinar on using data collection and research evidence for influencing social policy, strategic decision making, and implementation of programmes on 13 September. This is the first webinar of a new series focussing on data on philanthropy in Europe, and how we as a sector use it.

What do we know about philanthropy’s role in public policy making? What is needed to strengthen an evidence-informed approach to foundations’ involvement in the policy process?

To explore this topic, the webinar will bring together critical academic reflections on foundations’ role in public policy processes and insights from real live experiences by foundation practitioners. Drawing together these different perspectives, the webinar will propose a set of key questions as a starting point for wider discussions on shaping and strengthening evidence-informed philanthropy research, data and policy engagement.
