Other European Initiatives

Support for philanthropists who want to get involved in Europe and collaboration with European projects.

Supporting and collaborating with general interest projects in Europe, in a range of sectors including the environment, fighting poverty, health, education and saving our heritage: the King Baudouin Foundation gets involved alongside philanthropists and donors. And in order to enhance still further the impact we make, we also work with other European foundations and partners, notably within the framework of the Transnational Giving Europe network.

  • support for philanthropists (private individuals, organisations and businesses) that wish to get involved in public interest projects in one or more European countries
  • supporting projects created by individuals or organisations in one or more European countries
  • collaborating with projects of public interest in Europe in partnership with other European foundations.
