Facilitating funders towards a more effective philanthropy

Article published by Fondazione Lang Italia - March 2018


We had a talk with Tonika Hirdman, Director General of Fondation de Luxembourg, to explore the evolution regarding the perspectives and needs of philanthropists, also in light of the prominent role in the country played by the private-banking institutions assisting HNWIs.




A member of the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) network, Fondation de Luxembourg was created in 2008 by the Luxembourg State and the Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte to meet the growing need for a centre of expertise in philanthropy in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and facilitate philanthropic commitments made by private individuals and/or businesses.


In accompanying founders on their philanthropic journey, the Foundation has developed a bulk of expertise on pivotal issues, as for example how to define an effective community engagement model, set the basis for a successful – and smooth – exit strategy, or assist donors in their cross-border donations.
