Ariadne’s Thread is a monthly update of events, briefings and research for social change and human rights funders.
Ariadne News & Events
Ariadne is pleased to announce the release of its 2023 Forecast for European Social Change and Human Rights Funders! This year, 195 Ariadne members and friends of the network filled in surveys, participated in interviews and attended online forecast meetings to share their insights into trends in European social change and human rights philanthropy for 2023.
Read the report to find out what challenges and opportunities this year might bring for grantees; how funder practice could change; which political events are likely to affect your work; what will become more important in the months ahead; and – perhaps most importantly – what to feel hopeful about. There are chapters on France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, and the UK, plus a broader, global focus.
The challenges ahead may be great, but philanthropy can play a role in helping us overcome them.
