EVPA is a membership association made up of organisations interested in or practicing venture philanthropy and social investment across Europe. Established in 2004, the association aims to be the home as well as the highest-value catalytic network of European social investors, venture philanthropists and foundations committed to using venture philanthropy and social investment tools to target societal impact.

The EVPA Research and Policy Centre is the hub for knowledge and thought leadership on venture philanthropy and social investment – in Europe and beyond. It provides information on VP issues and connects researchers both through workshops and by providing information on the EVPA website.  The Centre also plays a key role in informing our members and key stakeholders about national and European policy initiatives of interest to VP/SI and voicing members’ and stakeholders’ concerns to policy makers.
