Strengthening the non-profit sector

Providing structural support to associations to boost their impact, stimulating the digital transformation of the voluntary sector and making effective tools of governance available.

Associations play a vital role in the proper functioning of democracy. Their impact on society depends not just on their financial resources but also on the quality of their leadership, governance, and their capacity to innovate and to adapt to technological developments.
