This article reviews the proposal to create a legal form for a European foundation, which could operate across borders within Europe. The European Foundation Statute was proposed by the European Union executive in 2012. The article outlines the background to, and case for, the initiative, the key elements of the way in which it would work alongside existing national legislative frameworks for foundations, and the hurdles it must overcome if it is to be successfully implemented.
