Mapping of Arts & Culture funding by European foundations

The European Foundation Centre (EFC) launched ‘Arts and Culture at the Core of Philanthropy’, its first ever study gathering and analysing data on the topic at European level.

The study, initiated by the EFC’s Arts and Culture Thematic Network, is based on the responses of 40 phil­anthropic organisations from all over the EU that took part in a survey launched by the EFC last year. Co-Chair of the Network, Ignasi Miró, Director Cultural Area, “la Caixa” Banking Foundation says, “This mapping aims to shed light on what funders are doing in the field of arts and culture, and looks to identify foundations and other philanthropic organisations who fund, support, advocate and partner in initiatives to advance arts and culture in Europe.”
