Together with leading associations across the world, the Association of German Foundations has initiated the Next Philanthropy project that illuminates news and trends in the philanthropy sector. What’s next in the foundation and philanthropy sector? The 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. Next Philanthropy is a global collaboration initiated by the Association of German Foundations. It aims to share knowledge and insights, and to provide an opportunity for thinking ahead.

Dafne is a partner organisation of Next Philanthropy.
