Erasmus Centre for Strategic Philanthropy
The Erasmus Centre for Strategic Philanthropy (ECSP) is a knowledge and learning center that contributes to the performance and effectiveness of the philanthropic sector. Our mission is to support, stimulate and challenge non-grantseeking European foundations in realizing their full potential for societal benefit.
ECSP offers capacity building services to established and beginning foundations and their main stakeholders. We initiate boundary-crossing research projects, develop competence-oriented training and education programs, and provide complementary advisory services upon request.
ECSP values the development of a vital philanthropy learning ecosystem for practitioners and academics in Europe and we contribute to that as a platform and network for knowledge sharing. We emphasize our bridging role between academics and practitioners and support the learning dialogue between these groups.
ECSP was established in 2009 by two schools at Erasmus University, the Erasmus School of Economics and the Rotterdam School of Management, and a leading Dutch family foundation. It is an independent center located on the Erasmus University campus in Rotterdam to facilitate access to academic thought leaders in the disciplines of economics, management, social sciences, law, history and philosophy.
On December 10th Stichting Maatschappij en Onderneming (SMO) issued a new publication on social entrepreneurship (in Dutch), entitled: ‘Sociaal ondernemerschap: De beweging naar nieuwe hybride modellen voor een andere toekomst’.
The Erasmus Centre for Strategic Philanthropy (ECSP) is looking for a dedicated Management Assistant / Office Manager. Main responsibilities are: office management, corporate communication and the organisation of events. You will be the key to making things work on a daily basis.
The Palgrave Handbook of Global Philanthropy is a comprehensive reference guide to the practice of philanthropy across twenty-six nations and regions, edited by ECSP colleague Pamala Wiepking and Femida Handy.
Legislation governing foundations varies from country to country; it reflects the culture, traditions and context in which the legal system and the foundation sector in a given state have developed. ECSP’s partner the European Foundation Centre has published an updated version of its “Comparative Highlights of Foundation Laws: The Operating Environment for Foundations in Europe”.
