EVPA defines VP/SI as an approach to build stronger social enterprises by providing them with both financial and non-financial support (i.e. capacity building) at all stages of their development in order to increase their societal impact.

 

Envisioning “a world where philanthropy and investment combine to drive societal impact”, EVPA’s mission is “to enable Venture Philanthropists and Social Investors to maximise societal impact through increased resources, collaboration and expertise”.

 

EVPA is committed to support its members in their work by providing networking opportunities and facilitate learning. Furthermore, EVPA strengthens its role a as European Thought Leader in order to build a deeper understanding of the sector, promote the appropriate use of VP/SI and voice the concerns and expectations of VP/SI practitioners to policy makers.
