As a result of the current crisis in Europe, 3 out of 5 people believe that the next 12 months will see cultural venues closing and creatives losing work.* You have the power to change this by supporting hundreds of cultural organisations, venues, projects and artists across Europe with a single donation now!

*Survey conducted amongst our social media followers and newsletter subscribers.

From co-developing Erasmus to evacuating artists and collections in Ukraine, your help has been enabling the delivery of hundreds of cultural projects across Europe for almost 70 years. We now need your help to continue providing vital funding and support for cultural projects, places and people during this time of crisis. As an independent non-profit organisation, every euro counts. With your donation, we will help:

For every euro donated, 94 cents will go directly towards delivering cultural initiatives across Europe, including funding for organisations and individuals through open calls. 6 cents will support the vital core operations of ECF so that we can help even more change-makers in the future.

Our Impact

With your help, we worked with 120 organisations to support 220 cultural projects across Europe last year, impacting the lives of over 300,000 Europeans of all ages. Examples include:

Major Donations & Legacies

‘Why you, you ask? Simple. I love Europe. Institutions and organisations that further the celebration and integration of its diverse people are worthy receivers of my charitable donations.’  (ECF monthly donor)

The European Cultural Foundation is registered with the Dutch Tax Administration as a cultural charity, ANBI. This means your donation can be 125% tax-deductible within the Netherlands. For all enquiries and more information about donating, please contact Ajda Milne, Fund Development Manager at
