Envisioning “a world where philanthropy and investment combine to drive societal impact”, EVPA’s mission is “to enable Venture Philanthropists and Social Investors to maximise societal impact through increased resources, collaboration and expertise”.
EVPA is committed to support its members in their work by providing networking opportunities and facilitate learning. Furthermore, EVPA strengthens its role a as European Thought Leader in order to build a deeper understanding of the sector, promote the appropriate use of VP/SI and voice the concerns and expectations of VP/SI practitioners to policy makers.
EVPA is a young and small organisation, and as such, we highly value the contribution of each team member. Therefore, working for the EVPA provides the opportunity to play an important role in the development of VP/SI in Europe. For more information please visit our website www.evpa.eu.com.
