Nov 1, 2013

This publication is the second volume published by the European Environmental Funders Group (EEFG), a Thematic Network of the EFC (European Foundation Centre). The report features a detailed analysis of the environmental grants of 62 European public benefit foundations, as compared to 27 in the previous edition. These 62 foundations include many of Europe's largest providers of philanthropic grants for environmental initiatives, although there are undoubtedly additional foundations that could be included in a report of this kind. It should be noted that only foundations that have a defined environmental programme or mission were contacted for this project. The report focuses on the 2011 calendar year as this is the latest year for which comprehensive grants data could be obtained for all 62 foundations. Statistical data are included.
