The event will consist of an interactive exhibition in the city center and a conference on philanthropy on October 2nd, at IMPACT - European centre for intersectional cooperation in Zadar. The conference will host multiple international experts on philanthropy and will be a chance for local associations to promote their work, participate in all the interactive events, and will raise awareness about the importance of philanthropy.

The European Day of Foundations and Donors was established in 2013 to raise awareness and celebrate the work of public benefit foundations. Now in its fourth year, DAFNE, The Donors and Foundations Network in Europe, want to encourage members, their networks and the wider public from across the continent to ‘tell the story of philanthropy’, and offer the public insights into the valuable and diverse work of foundations. The campaign will be taking place across Europe, using the hashtag #October1Europe.
