• Description

This joint Philea – Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) publication presents case studies of 6 major obstacles to cross-border philanthropy. Each case study provides real-world examples of impacted foundations and donors, and delves into the broader legal and fiscal contexts behind each barrier. These case studies clearly illustrate the need to remove obstacles to the free movement of philanthropic capital and freedom of association across the EU and beyond. With this in mind, the publication offers recommendations to policymakers on ways to dismantle these barriers so that philanthropy in Europe can better fulfil its mission of providing private resources for public good.
