PEXforum is where European philanthropy infrastructure meets. Began in 2020, PEXforum brings together leaders and experts from national, regional and European philanthropy support organisations to identify common ground and jointly advance the European philanthropy ecosystem.


PEXforum is the Europe-wide annual event where the PEXcommunity gathers to collectively identify challenges and opportunities for the sector, share best practices and insights, explore concrete projects and invite others to collaborate.

PEXforum 2020

PEXforum 2020 was held on 23-24 January 2020 in Madrid, seeing more than 120 people come together for the inaugural PEXforum to collectively identify challenges and opportunities for the sector.


The discussions, debates and dialogues created at PEXforum have sparked the growth of several initiatives which we call PEXprojects which strengthen the ties between us, putting our effort and energy into creating something bigger than what we can alone.
