Studying and mapping social engagement and boosting the impact of the engagement and initiatives undertaken by citizens, associations and foundations.

Every day, thousands of associations and foundations get involved with a range of themes, including the environment, health, culture and the fight against poverty. There are also a great many individuals and businesses that get involved alongside them, thanks to a particular passion or their engagement in meeting the challenges of our society. Boosting this engagement – whether at a local or worldwide level – lies at the heart of the King Baudouin Foundation’s missions.

We facilitate philanthropy in Belgium, Europe and around the world. We support public interest initiatives led by citizens, associations and foundations. And we closely monitor the development of the voluntary sector, paying special attention to the most effective use of data in the cause of the common good.
