Association of German Foundations
The Association coordinated the preparation of the project proposal and conducted fundraising for ECFI in the initial stages of the initiative’s development. It worked closely with the Centre for Philanthropy (CpF) and UKCF in these activities. The decision to undertake such an initiative was a response to growing requests for assistance and partnership from organisations and initiatives in other countries in Europe, and an increasing interest among its own member foundations in European activities. ECFI’s establishment reflects the Association’s desire to see CF organisations engaged and working collaboratively within Europe.
In keeping with the collaborative and consultative nature of the project, the Association will be advised with regard to ECFI strategies and activities by an Advisory Group. Relationships with existing and future donors will remain the responsibility of the Association and its board.
