EFC’s brand new ‘Championing Philanthropy’ exhibition is open from 15 November until the end of the year.  Championing Philanthropy showcases how institutional philanthropy improves lives through projects by its members, and brings to life a wide range of projects that have been devised and carried out by members of the European Foundation Centre’s Governing Council.

These projects, showcased in the exhibition space of Philanthropy House aim to demonstrate to policymakers, the general public and visitors to Brussels the valuable work in the philanthropic sector.

The exhibition is both visually and mentally stimulating. Visitors have the opportunity to completely immerse themselves in varied and thought-provoking projects that are particularly relevant to the world in which we find ourselves today. While there is a diversity of projects, there are several common themes including: Refugees and Migration, Education, Social Development, Youth Empowerment, Health etc. The Exhibition features the following projects by the EFC’s Governing Council members:
