Save the Date: Global Philanthropy Project at the European Foundation Centre
Annual General Assembly and Conference 2020

Vienna, Austria
Thursday, May 21 2:30-5:00pm CET
Location: Rosa-lila Villa

Dreilinden, Hil-Foundation, Oak Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Mama Cash and the Global Philanthropy Project will host a Cafe talk at the Rosa Lila Villa in Vienna. The Rosa Lila Villa is the center of LGBTI life in Vienna and an important historical epicenter of political and social life for European LGBTI people. This moderated conversation will dive deep into the lived experiences and financing modalities and inequities and funding opportunities to support LGBTI people in Europe.

The proposed discussions will be guided by the 2017/2018 Global Resources Report: Philanthropic & Government Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex Communities, GPP’s a comprehensive report on the state of foundation and government funding for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) issues. This report, which will be released in May 2020, will capture data on more than 15,000 grants awarded by more than 600 foundations, intermediaries, and corporations and by nearly 20 government and multilateral agencies over the two-year period of 2017-2018. The report and discussions will provide detailed data on the distribution of LGBTI funding by geography, issue, strategy, and population focus, offering a tool for identifying trends, gaps, and opportunities in the rapidly changing landscape of LGBTI global funding. The bi-annual Global Resources Report provides governments, multilateral agencies, civil society, philanthropy and corporate foundations with the most detailed and accurate understanding of the global funding landscape on LGBTI issues. This session will focus on data regarding the Council of Europe States. 

Foundation Sponsors of the proposal: Dreilinden, Hil-Foundation, Oak Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Mama Cash

About Coffeehouse Talks

The Viennese coffeehouse culture as a “typical social practice” has been officially included in the list of UNESCO’s national intangible cultural heritage since 10 November 2011. The Viennese coffeehouses are places of daily exchange for their guests. Here you keep yourself up-to-date and discuss the current developments of your private life and the world at large. The typical Viennese coffeehouse was not only a place for drinks and (less so) food, but also an alternative living and working room, open from morning to night, where regulars could be reached by telephone, have their mail sent to them, and received visits. Coffee houses provided address and telephone directories, timetables and encyclopaedias. Until today there is a variety of newspapers and magazines to read on offer as well as entertainment to fuel not only but also artists’ and politicians’ minds when discussing a better, or at least, different world. 

The EFC Coffeehouse Talks are short sessions of small groups around coffeehouse tables experts and peers from the philanthropic and civil society world will discuss with you topics of importance for our societies over a cup of coffee (or tea) and typical Viennese pastries.

The Coffehouse Talks are limited to 30 participants each. Please register as soon as possible for your favourite talk. Registration will be available shortly.
