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.
The King Baudouin Foundation takes to heart its mission to strengthen associations in an effort to help them meet the challenges they face, particularly in relation to digitalisation. We listen to their needs and build bridges between them and key actors.
- managing and developing the Venture Philanthropy Fund, which provides structural support for associations in various fields, including digitalisation, economic strategy and modelling, governance, financial management and impact evaluation
- support and stimulation of the digital transformation of the voluntary sector
- support for the sector in its use of data used for public interest
- making available to associations tools of governance, such as notregouvernance.be.
Strengthening the non-profit sector is part of the programme Social engagement
