CPhS - The Center for Philanthropic Studies

The research program of the Center for Philanthropic Studies seeks to answer five general questions:

  • How can philanthropic efforts be conceptualized?
  • What is the volume, origin and destination of philanthropy in the Netherlands and how has philanthropy changed in the past decades?
  • What is the volume, origin and destination of philanthropy in Europe?
  • How can engagement in philanthropy be explained?
  • How do philanthropic sector organizations try to achieve their missions, vis-à-vis the government and corporate sector?
