PHILANTHROPY – TOWARDS A BETTER PRACTICE MODEL
Philanthropy is an important catalyst for social change and plays a pivotal role in supporting communities and ameliorating disadvantage. But in common with all sectors, it is facing unprecedented challenges – the pace of change in a digital world, entrenched disadvantage, global disruptions and the capacity of stakeholders to support innovation collaboratively.
Core to these challenges is the relationship between philanthropy and the not-for-profits who seek funding to support their work. The insights from this report establish a benchmark for the current state of play in Australia. It identifies challenges, and significant opportunities for change that will build
towards a better practice model and the increased impact of philanthropy in Australia.
Join us as we present the findings of our research and discuss the way forward.
The session will open with Liz Gillies, Honorary Fellow, Asia Pacific Social Impact Centre and CEO Menzies Foundation, presenting the Report’s key findings.
Following this Karen Mahlab AM, Founder & CEO, Pro Bono Australia, will convene a panel conversation to seek responses from philanthropic and not-for-profit leaders and discuss the way forward:
Sarah Davies, CEO, Philanthropy Australia
