Ending Violence Against Women in Europe: An Exploration of Philanthropic Giving

This is the first-ever research into philanthropic funding for work to end violence against women in Europe, and addresses both donors’ and recipients’ perspectives on current activities and funding priorities in this field.


The goal of this report is to enable foundations active in promoting social change and human rights across Europe to better understand their position in the context of the larger funder community.

The report, written by Ariadne members Karin Heisecke and Karen Weisblatt, identifies avenues for further reflection and engagement and discusses the potential role that foundations can play moving forward.
