Monitoring legal and policy developments

Keeping a close eye on legal and policy developments is essential to protecting the operating environment for philanthropy in Europe and establishing strategic engagement opportunities with policymakers. To inform our interested members and key stakeholders about policy developments and trends, we issue regular weekly EU briefings and a quarterly newsletter, and we organise discussions around these topics. We invite members to let us know if they experience any challenges in their day-to-day operations or policy framework.
