Press release: EFC’s newly launched website reflects the dynamic and diverse face of philanthropy

Brussels, 14 May 2019 – Today, as part of its 30th anniversary activities, the European Foundation Centre (EFC) launched its new website one week ahead of the start of its Annual Conference in Paris.  Adopting a new approach and easier navigation, the website aims to encourage engagement and to champion philanthropy by telling the story of the sector through the work of foundations, providing a space to share thought-provoking and even controversial insights on hot topics, and through a new EXPLORE feature that lets visitors dive into the topics they are most interested in.

“We decided to upgrade our website to better reflect the dynamic, diverse and changing face of philanthropy,” says Gerry Salole, EFC’s Chief Executive. “The new site is a first port of call for EFC members, policymakers, media or anyone wanting to engage with and know more about the philanthropy sector in Europe. I am particularly excited about the launch of a series of diverse voices, opinions and provocations from the sector to mark EFC’s 30 years, focusing on the challenges for the next 30 (and beyond), how European philanthropy can tackle these challenges and what role the EFC plays as a catalyst.”

In addition to information on EFC members, the site provides a point of entry to EFC Thematic Networks, Peer-learning exchanges, Communities of Practice, Representation work, Knowledge Hub and Research Service. The new site offers several new features:

  • A section which showcases examples of how philanthropy makes an impact.
  • An improved “What’s new” area filled with the latest news, blogs, videos, events, exhibitions, and good practices.
  • The EXPLORE area ‒ a powerful search feature with advanced filtering functionality.
  • A dedicated section on Philanthropy House, the physical hub of European philanthropy in Brussels, and home to the EFC and several other philanthropic organisations.
  • A job section for EFC members to post their vacancies and quickly reach their potential targets
