Enabling Environment

Philea champions the interests of its members vis-à-vis the EU. We act as a monitoring, legal analysis and policy engagement hub for European philanthropy. Our main objective is to shape the national, European and international legislative environment by implementing the European advocacy roadmap for a Single Market for Philanthropy. We seek to strengthen the overall policy engagement of the sector with EU and other multilateral organisations.
