Knowledge

We build our knowledge base on European philanthropy – in partnership with academics, researchers and experts – by surveying the work of philanthropy organisations, and identifying trends and issues affecting them, with the aim of helping Philea members to inform their strategic decision-making and connect them with peers and partners, as well as demonstrating to a range of stakeholders the impact, diversity and scale of the sector.
