“Unlocking Private Capital for Social Good in Central & Eastern Europe” – report launch

The Social Impact Alliance for Central & Eastern Europe will launch its new report “Unlocking Private Capital for Social Good in Central & Eastern Europe”, a comprehensive analysis of what is needed to unlock private capital for social good across Central and Eastern Europe, in Brussels on 19 September.

The analysis is based on quantitative and qualitative research that has been conducted between 2020 and 2023 in collaboration with more than 230 key stakeholders and decision-makers from governments, private sector and civil society in 11 EU Member States in Central and Eastern Europe: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Moreover, given that the war in Ukraine has often been the context, catalyst, and driving force for many businesses and individuals to start giving, the quantitative research was expanded to include also the Ukraine.

The webinar will feature Konrad Siwinski, Social Impact Alliance for Central and Eastern Europe, presenting the main findings of the report, followed by a panel discussion with representatives from impact investing, philanthropy, and the European Commission, including Philea’s Head of Policy, Hanna Surmatz, with Anna Athanasopoulou, DG GROW, European Commission, Florian Bauer, ERSTE Stiftung and other guests.
