European Parliament debate on ways to unlock philanthropy’s potential for public good

Following years of efforts to promote a more enabling environment for philanthropy in Europe, MEPs and key stakeholders gathered at the European Parliament in order to debate how to release philanthropy’s untapped potential for public good across Europe.



The debate, which was attended by Fondation de Luxembourg, took place on October 1st, the European Day of Foundations and Donors, a day when foundations and national associations of donors across Europe raise public awareness about philanthropy.


One of the highlights was the renewed discussion about the creation of a European Foundation statute, i.e. a legal foundation that would be recognized legally and fiscally throughout the whole EU.


On the occasion, 8 pictures (selected out of 35) representing projects from different countries were displayed at the European Parliament, among which one from Fondation Alijul, under our aegis.
