Expanding Our Mission: New Services in Europe

Why Europe?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You may ask yourself why Accordant expanded services into Europe. It’s simple. We believe in a noble cause that extends beyond geographic boundaries. We believe in serving as a catalyst to transform health care through voluntary charitable giving no matter where the health care organization may reside. We believe our niche expertise in advancing health care philanthropy in the United States can bring unique value to the similarly fluid and changing health care environments throughout Europe.  That’s why we are committed to an expanded role in driving thought leadership and providing services to advance health care philanthropy. 

There is an opportunity for philanthropy to play a larger role in safeguarding sustainability and in fueling innovation and progress.  Thus, we feel called to be active participants in finding ground-breaking solutions and in harnessing the power of public partnership for the public good.   

Accordant Philanthropy will embrace the same level of commitment to driving thought leadership and designing practice to advance the field but with specific tailoring to reflect the unique challenges and opportunities of individual countries across Europe. This will extend into customized versions of our research, publications, and training. Accordant will offer a range of onsite services including strategic philanthropy planning and training as well as a range of other consulting services delivered in a streamlined or virtual environment. 

It is our intent to provide a robust and comprehensive approach that is adaptable, accessible and responsive to the evolving health care and charitable European landscape. Additionally, we believe this dynamic environment will provide valuable cross-pollination and will facilitate insight into new models, new perspectives and new data that will benefit our clients in both the US and Europe.  

Andrew Watt will serve as the linchpin of Accordant Philanthropy in Europe and will be operating out of the UK. Andrew’s resume boasts more than 25 years of service to US- and UK-based social and philanthropic sectors, and his passion for and experience in multinational thought leadership, nonprofit management and health care philanthropy has enabled him to establish bridges between diverse communities in order to affectsubstantial change. Andrew’s addition to the Accordant team operates as a foundational component for our international expansion and allows us the ability to bring our skills and expertise to a new audience.

Accordant Philanthropy is dedicated to providing thought leadership to all those who serve to advance health care through philanthropy, and it is our privilege to embrace the calling to care and serve no matter where it may lead.
