How you can help ECFR

  • At a time where the unity and stability of Europe is being challenged, ECFR needs your support to promote a strong unified voice for Europe in the world. By providing a contribution to ECFR you can help us preserve our competitive edge in in-depth research with practical recommendations for action, using our seven offices across Europe as platforms for analysis, debate, advocacy and communications.


    Support ECFR’s work individually, through your company or organisation:


    Fund our outreach

    ECFR creates pan-European platforms, such as our Annual Council Meeting, which follows the European debate to different locations, combining big ideas about where Europe and the world are going with practical discussion about how to make them happen.


    Fund our programmes

    ECFR has four programmes that promote effective foreign policy based on European values and principles, such as respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.


    Fund our pan-European base

    ECFR has seven national offices across Europe that provide unparalleled capacity for insight into national dynamics to work towards a unified European voice.


    Fund our research

    ECFR’s publications make concrete policy recommendations on how to use Europe’s influence as a force for good and frame the debate around Europe, allowing it to reach a wider audience.


    Leave a gift through a legacy

    This would allow ECFR to strengthen its work for an effective Europe for years to come.
