Legal environment for philanthropy in Europe

The latest data on trends and developments across Europe (2020)

European philanthropy is as diverse as European societies. This latest research conducted by leading experts provides insights into the legal and fiscal landscape of philanthropy across Europe.

Each profile contains information such as requirements for registration, reporting, economic activity, and governance, tax treatment as well as trends and developments. We have released 40 country reports. The publication of comparative highlights will follow in April 2021.

These country reports would not have been possible without the contribution and rigorous analysis of the national experts to whom we are indebted. We would also like to acknowledge that these country profiles were first launched in 2002 by the EFC and have been updated every few years since. This fifth edition has been published under the Philanthropy Advocacy initiative, a joint Dafne and EFC project.
