A legacy from the 2010 EU Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion
The EAPN Fund was established as a legacy from 2010 (the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion) and on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN). It is managed by the Kind Baudouin Foundation.

EAPN Fund seeks the support of prominent persons, companies, foundations, public authorities and people who believe in a social Europe free of poverty to contribute financial support to build the Fund.
