What is Philanthropy House?

The chances are philanthropy has had a positive influence on your life already without you even knowing it. A unique and fully refurbished building in the heart of Brussels, the House brings philanthropy to life by being:


A place to discover

Philanthropy House will help you to understand and recognise the work of the European philanthropic sector; up until now a largely invisible force despite its wide-ranging impact on people’s lives.

A place to engage

Philanthropy House is your entry point into the exciting world of foundations’ work.
A hub of innovative debates, exhibitions, conferences and documentary screenings, Philanthropy House will show you what foundations do, how they intersect your daily life and why the work they undertake is so important.

A place to learn

An initiative of the European Foundation Centre, Philanthropy House is home to several other philanthropic support organisations… as such it is also a repository of knowledge, expertise and resources on the sector.
