Funding partners

EFA is funded by three sources: membership fees, public EU grants and unrestricted corporate grants. Funding is transparent and accountable. It is based on independence and trust. EFA sponsors sign up for sustainable corporate partnership and provide support through core and project grants. EU grants are for projects from funding programmes from the European Commission. Since EFA strives to be inclusive in representing patients, membership fees for patient groups are low.

EFA funding is transparent

Funding is scrutinised and available by source in our annual reports. See here the latest Annual Report 2019. If you have questions about EFA funding and how it is managed, please contact the EFA Director. 

Accountability of funding is an everyday job at EFA

Funding supports the allergy and airways information, care and prevention programme. Programmes arise from needs of patients and the unique position EFA has at the European level. EFA unifies national patient groups and represents them at the European level. Programmes are decided by the EFA board and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of members, and the European allergy and airways patient community.  

EFA Board ensures good governance 

Funds are managed with good governance. The board reviews quarterly reports, based on a budget approved by the AGM. The Board reports to the AGM for its approval.  Accounts are audited by certified auditors. EFA delivers according to its plans and follows tight expenditure policy. EFA is not for profit, but we have a responsible social and organisational reserve.
