The European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) is a lively community of organisations sharing the same vision and a common goal: creating positive societal impact through venture philanthropy.
Established in 2004, EVPA helps investors and grantmakers to connect and learn from each other in their pursuit of deeper societal impact, using venture philanthropy and social investment tools.
“Our collective includes people who share this mission of Saving the world. We build trust amongst peers based on solidarity, leveraging resources and being vulnerable. This trust engages us in collaborations around impactful missions and projects. People come with their skills as a whole and have meaningful work.
Trust, fairness, openness and collaboration are at the core of the ecosystem. We do our best to find skilled individuals who share this mindset.”
The Lunt Foundation financed the production of a short video about Venture Philanthropy. It was released at the EVPA annual conference in Dublin in November 2014.
