How donors can support civic space - ICNL
Civil society and the ability to exercise civic freedoms – the freedoms of association, expression, and peaceful assembly – have been under threat for many years. Governments continue to enact laws and regulations that impede civil society – individuals, organizations and movements – to exist and operate. The global trend is marked by the use of law as a repressive tool, converting the concept of “rule of law” into “rule by law.”

The wave of civic space constraints – which is unlikely to recede soon – has been the focus of much study and discussion. This report examines how donor governments can effectively support civic space in this challenging environment. What strategies, approaches and practices can donors consider to protect civic space? The report examines the trends in civic space constraints, why donor governments should be countering these trends, and how they can effectively do so.

The Regulatory Framework for Fundraising in Europe | ECNL
Fundraising regulation is a timely subject in Europe, as the past decade has seen a number of countries revisit their regulatory framework on the subject. The legislative changes show diverse trends: many aim to reduce administrative burdens and regulatory controls on fundraising activities while others increase state oversight.

Despite the actuality of the topic and the importance of civil society organizations’ (CSOs) right to access resources, there has been relatively little research regarding just how CSO fundraising is regulated. To help fill this gap, ECNL has published an extensive study comparing the legal framework for fundraising in 16 European countries.

Our strategy – Stiftung Mercator
Being the home of our foundation, the Ruhr region remains the area in which application of our strategy is given preference. We perceive the challenging conditions that prevail in this region, which is undergoing a process of structural change, as an enrichment when it comes to working towards our objectives, and regard the Ruhr region as a “laboratory” in which we try out new ideas for the future. We are convinced that education and science are the key driving forces for this region’s development and integration, which is why we want to help create a successful and cooperative educational and scientific area in the Ruhr region by interlinking and promoting coordination between the relevant actors and institutions.

Funding Journalism – A Critical Part of a Funder’s Toolkit | Raikes Foundation
Philanthropic investment in journalism can be risky—foundations can be seen as exerting too much influence on a publication through their grantmaking. But the revenue model for journalism has changed rapidly over the last decade, along with the rise of amateur reporting and outright misinformation. This has created an environment where well-researched, substantive reporting is more critical than ever. Our media and journalism grantees take care to maintain editorial independence. They choose what to write and how to present it. This means there’s a corresponding risk that we might not agree with the positioning or coverage of an issue. But, this is a risk the Raikes Foundation is willing to take in order to uphold the firewall between funder and grantee.
