Projects of the Association of German Foundations
Alliance of Community Foundations in Germany
The Alliance of Community Foundations in Germany is the national network for Germany’s community foundations. Together we support citizens to organise their communities in order to make them better places to live.
European Community Foundation Initiative
The European Community Foundation Initiative (ECFI) is a collaborative initiative committed to strengthening and promoting the community foundation movement in Europe. It is hosted by the Association of German Foundations.
European Foundation Day
Also in Germany, we celebrate the European Foundation Day on October 1st. It is a day of activities to raise awareness about foundations, showcasing their work and highlighting the value of their work for the society.
German Prize for Civic Engagement
The German Prize for Civic Engagement honours voluntary engagement in and for civil society in Germany. About 30 million people volunteer for the common good in Germany, they buttress democracy and live solidarity.
What’s next in the foundation and philanthropy sector?
Our first few hypotheses are: it will be more global, more transparent, more participatory, more collaborative, more digital, and more entrepreneurial; and there will be larger investment.
Network of Foundations for Education
The Network of Foundations for Education used to be a project of the Association of German Foundations and was established as an independent organisation in 2020. Its objective is to foster alliances and co-operation for education and support foundations with their education activities.
