Now in its 24th edition, the Europa International Foundation Directory 2015 provides an unparalleled guide to the foundations, trusts, charitable and grantmaking NGOs, and other similar not-for-profit organizations of the world. It provides a comprehensive picture of third sector activity on a global scale.
Introductory essays offer an overview of non-profit sector activity in various countries and regions of the world, and an analysis of the growing importance and impact of community foundations. Indexes, which allow the reader to find organizations by area of activity (including conservation and the environment, science and technology, education and social welfare) and geographical region of operations (e.g. South America, Central America and the Caribbean, Australasia, Western Europe and North America), are included for ease of use.
Users will find names and contact details for over 2,500 institutions worldwide. This new edition has been revised and expanded to include the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on this growing sector.
