As a civil society organisation
Civitates supports civil society organisations in their work on democracy and solidarity in Europe through grant-making, capacity development, knowledge support and connecting actors across the field.
As a private foundation
Civitates wants to reinforce the capacity of philanthropy to respond to long-term threats and to strengthen democracy in Europe by establishing a robust funder collaborative. Private foundations are collaborating in Civitates since 2018. To these foundations, Civitates adds value by efficiently distributing funds and reaching a large scope of grantees.
