Since the onset of the economic crisis in 2008, concerns have been raised by all interested parties on the negative impacts for people with disabilities. This study, which was commissioned by the European Consortium of Foundations on Human Rights and Disability, examines evidence at both European and national level of the effect of the economic crisis, in terms of austerity measures, on the rights and status of people with disabilities.
A core team of European researchers, complemented by national experts in six EU Member States, conducted an independent survey of documentary sources and carried out interviews with funders, providers and organisations of people with disabilities. The countries included in the study were Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the UK.The findings are linked back to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and the objectives of the EU Disability Strategy.

This document presents the philanthropic landscape in Europe. Ten countries are considered. Individual giving as well as the foundation sector are considered. It includes statistical data, and comparisons with US philanthropic sector.
Increasingly, foundations talk about ways of breaking down silos in their grant making approaches in order to step away from the single-issue focus to improve effectiveness and to achieve long lasting solutions to deep rooted problems. In this framework, the effort of many foundations that are taking action to breaking down those silos by developing joint grants across different priority areas is remarkable. This publication's main aim is to communicate these greatest efforts to provide a source of reflection and inspiration for foundations. Since we are working in a systemic framework, it would be ineffective to address disability without acknowledging its relationships with gender equality, education, employment, ageing, research, cooperation and development.
This booklet aims also to demonstrate through a solution-based approach, the broadness of foundational programs in the field of disability that also have a clear focus on social innovation. The best practices showcased show how foundations consider disability a cross-cutting and inclusive issue, integrating it into programs that reach out not only persons with disabilities but connect them with very different fields of civil society. This practical tool can serve as an inspiration for other foundations to act taking into consideration the cross-cutting approach.

El Primer Informe se referia al sector fundacional en el bienio 2008-2009. Los datos disponibles correspondian a dichos anos pero en aquella ocasion tan importantes eran los datos como el diseno de una metodologia que sirviera para estudios posteriores y la plataforma sobre la que se pudiera construir una serie de datos comparables entre si, preludio de estudios posteriores que tengan como objetivo principal el establecimiento de relaciones causales entre variables.
Este Segundo Informe abarca el periodo 2008-2012.

La Asociación Española de Fundaciones ha publicado en 2013 un estudio pionero sobre los datos de empleo en el sector fundacional español registrados hasta 2012.
La investigación, desarrollada a través del Instituto de Análisis Estratégico de Fundaciones (INAEF), tiene como objetivo conocer cuál es la evolución y situación del empleo en el sector fundacional para poder proponer medidas de actuación en este ámbito que afectarían positivamente no solo a las fundaciones sino indirectamente al resto de la sociedad en términos económicos y de bienestar social.

Robert Bosch Stiftung;
The alarming rise of youth unemployment rates following the recent economic turmoil has challenged national as well as European labour market policies. With more than 5.5 million young people in the EU struggling to find jobs, there is an urgent need to develop strategies for combatting youth unemployment, in order to avoid a lost generation of European youths threatened by lasting disadvantages in terms of labour market and social position.
Against this background, the Robert Bosch Stiftung has commissioned the present study from the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim. Its aims are to survey the development of youth unemployment in Europe, to identify the relevant institutional and economic drivers and to discuss the necessary courses of action to achieve a better integration of young adults into the labour market. While the study covers the perspective of the EU member states as a whole, it strongly focusses on southern European countries, which are especially suffering from the current youth unemployment crisis. Its core part is comprised of three country reports which detail the situation in Italy, Spain and Portugal, and review current and potential future policy initiatives that could help in reducing youth unemployment.
This report provides a thorough and comprehensive analysis of the contributions that foundations make to support research and innovation in EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland. Over the last 25 years, the role of foundations as supporters of research and innovation in Europe has grown significantly in scope and scale. However, the landscape is fragmented and, till now, largely uncharted. Little is known about the vast majority of such foundations, their activities or even their number, and information about their real impact on research and innovation in Europe was very limited. A team of national experts in the EU 27 (and Norway and Switzerland), led by VU University Amsterdam, has therefore been commissioned by the European Commission to study foundations' contribution to research and innovation in the EU under the name EUFORI. This study helps fill this knowledge gap by analysing foundations' financial contributions, and provides useful insights into the different ways they operate. It also identifies emerging trends and the potential for exploring synergies and collaboration between foundations, research-funding agencies, businesses and research institutes.
