In questo articolo, EVPA (European Venture Philanthropy Association) fa il punto su una serie di discussioni avuta con alcune fondazioni ed enti filantropici, di grandi dimensioni e innovative, sul potenziale effetto del Covid-19 nel far evolvere le pratiche delle organizzazioni, spingendole a diventare più strategiche e lungimiranti.

IKEA FOUNDATION COMMITS €1 BILLION TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

The IKEA Foundation has committed €1 billion to climate programmes over the next five years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in alignment with the Paris Agreement.

This new funding will see the foundation support renewable energy initiatives which can deliver reductions in greenhouse gas emissions fast and efficiently. This includes replacing polluting sources of energy with renewable ones and providing access to energy to communities. This new commitment comes in addition to the €500 million which the IKEA Foundation has already planned to spend on climate mitigation and adaptation programmes over the next five years and the €368 million spent between 2014 and 2020 on similar programmes.

INNOVATIVE FINANCE MODELS: THE NEW FACE OF PHILANTHROPY

Around the world, sources of public funding are insufficient to provide all people with the essential social services required to live healthy lives. The role of the private capital has become increasingly critical, in order to bridge these social provision gaps. The private sector has grown bolder by adopting innovative financing mechanisms to address root social issues alongside the public sector.

Some of the recent approaches that philanthropists have taken go beyond traditional charitable giving. They are now engaging in new forms of results-based and blended financing models, and offering a wide-range of bespoke services alongside their investments. These new approaches promote innovation in service delivery, thereby allowing capital to be deployed more efficiently.

EUROPEAN FUNDERS HAVE INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL GIVING, SHOWS EFC REPORT

The European Foundation Centre has launched the 5th edition of its environmental funding mapping, representing the most comprehensive study to date into support for environmental initiatives provided by European philanthropic foundations. The report shows that while environmental giving has increased since the last report in 2016, funders largely don’t seem to be interested in trying to disrupt the status quo.

The mapping builds on the work of the four previous editions, significantly increasing the number of foundations and grants being analysed, along with the total value of these grants. The research seeks to establish as detailed a picture as possible of the state of European foundation funding for environmental issues. This edition of the mapping covers 127 foundations and 5,358 environmental grants across 146 countries, totalling €745.6 million in funding in 2018.
