EVPA (European Venture Philanthropy Association) is a unique network at the intersection of finance and purpose, driven by knowledge and focused on impact. They strive to increase prosperity and social progress for all, fix inequalities and injustices and preserve the planet.

EVPA offers strategies, insights and practical wisdom to capital providers. They mobilise resources and ensure impact capital is deployed with maximum effectiveness.

They are building an expansive and harmonious global impact ecosystem, setting up new markets in eastern Europe, Middle East and north Africa. Their EU policy work presses for a thriving and inclusive impact market.

They unite capital providers (impact funds, foundations, corporate social investors, banks, public funders) and social innovators of all sorts – from household names to emerging new players.
