The Dafne team are currently working on several projects with the aim of fostering dialogue and peer exchange between Dafne members and relevant stakeholders, as well as empowering the European philanthropic sector. Below is an overview of the Dafne’s key activities at present.

Inspired by the UK Funder Commitment on Climate Change, Dafne is helping to advance the “Philanthropy Climate Coalition” which brings together philanthropy networks to explore potential action and support in helping foundations address climate change.
Dafne is working as a partner in Next Philanthropy, a global collaboration around emerging trends and developments in the field of philanthropy.
Originally launched by the Russian Donors Forum, FOCUS:Philanthropy has now been expanded to European level by Dafne. The Initiative tells visual stories of the people behind philanthropy and how they work for a better Europe.
