An open invitation to contribute your thoughts and ideas on European Philanthropy.

We are open to opinion pieces and analytical articles addressing European philanthropy, latest developments and trends, next generation, innovative funding practices as well as pressing societal issues such as climate crisis, inequalities and digital transition.

Potential writers are encouraged to contact Hanna Stähle (hanna.staehle@dafne-online.eu) with proposed topics. We kindly invite you submit a 150-word pitch outlining the topic of your article.

Are you interested and wondering what is required?

General requirements for opinion pieces and articles:
