The Directory of European Grantmakers, published by international fundraising consultancy Chapel and York Limited www.chapel-york.com profiles and gives contact details for nearly 1,000 European grantmakers from 23 countries. It can be purchased on-line.
Researched in great depth, the Directory of European Grantmakers provides details on Grantmaking foundations in Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK.
Foundations have become an important source of funding to charitable organisations due in part to the cutbacks of government spending in various areas.
The good news is that a number of new grantmaking foundations have been formed across Europe in recent years.
The Directory of European Grantmakers profiles new and established European Grantmaking Foundations.
Many grantmakers profiled in this Directory have websites.
Many have international giving interests, whether through their country’s historical links to certain nations or through a desire to support the development of communities in countries poorer than their own.
Wherever possible, profiles of Grantmakers include:
– Contact details (including telephone number, fax number, e-mail address and website address as well as the individual to contact about grants)
– A brief history of the foundation

– Geographic focus: countries the grantmaker awards grants to
– Limitations: types of support the grantmaker does not give (e.g. some do not give bursaries to individual students)
