We supported EVPA’s Corporate Initiative to help corporate social investors achieve greater social impact.
(Programme concluded and no longer supported by the Trafigura Foundation)
The European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) pools together European organisations practising social investment and venture philanthropy, defined as a philanthropic approach that provides social purpose organisations with financial and non-financial support.
EVPA's mission consists in enabling venture philanthropists and social investors to maximise their social impact through increased resources, collaboration and expertise – that are constantly shared by EVPA’s activities.
As a member of the association, in 2021 the Trafigura Foundation contributed to EVPA’s Corporate Initiative, which connects over 300 corporate foundations, social impact funds and other socially-driven corporate entities.
The Initiative has led research on strategic alignment and collective corporate impact strategies, amongst other topics, to help corporate social investors align with their related company and complement each other to maximise their impact.
Sophie Faujour, EVPA Corporate Initiative Lead, says “Trafigura Foundation has made a valuable contribution to our research, most recently on impact integrity. They regularly share best practices and have been a very inspiring player for our corporate community. We are very proud to award them EVPA’s Data Transparency Label 2021, strengthening the investing for impact movement.”
