Association of German Foundations / Bundesverband Deutscher Stiftungen

The Association aims to support the work of foundations by collaborating with policy makers, public officials and governing bodies. These collaborations have led to improvements in foundation legislation and tax-law, and the integration of practice-led expertise into public decision-making processes. The Association also facilitates dialogue between foundations through regular networking events. More about the Association of German Foundations.

Betterplace Lab

A self-proclaimed “think- and do-tank”, the Betterplace Lab began in 2010 with a desire to harness the internet for social good. Today, the organisation strives to maximise work and investment in the social sector by providing project managers and donors with the latest research in the digital-social field. Recent reports include studies into data privacy at NGOs and youth engagement via social media. More about Betterplace Lab.
