The AFC-ENG is an organization that is run mostly by activists and unpaid volunteers, and for this reason costs are kept low. It is supported by the Alliance for Childhood European Network Foundation.


The activities of the AFC-ENG have also been financed by contributions from the partners, individuals and organizations, in particular the Learning for Well-being Foundation. Furthermore, some donations were received from Community Playthings (2008), the Jean Monnet Programme of the European Commission (2009?2012, together with ECSWE), the Rabobank Foundation (2009), the Bernard van Leer Foundation (2011), and the IONA Foundation (2019).


Donations from individuals and companies that adhere to the criteria for partnership are very welcome.
