We supported EVPA’s Corporate Initiative to help corporate social investors achieve greater social impact.
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 2020 the Trafigura Foundation contributed to EVPA’s Corporate Initiative, which connects circa 70 corporate foundations, social impact funds and other socially-driven corporate entities.
The initiative aims at understanding how the improvement of strategic alignment between corporate social investors (including corporate foundations, corporate social impact funds and corporate social businesses) and the related companies can help to increase social impact. The full research study has been released in 2020, with accompanying case studies.
