New Zealand Philanthropy – What’s in it for us?
Monday, 21st July 2003 at 1:07 pm

Culturally and geographically New Zealand is our closest neighbour, but apart from sheep, scenery and rugby, few of us know much about it, especially the philanthropic scene in NZ.

When the NZ economy was restructured during the 1980s many publicly-owned assets were sold. This led to the establishment of a number of statutory trusts and these now have a total corpus of NZ$2.4 billion.

Trusts and foundations in New Zealand have an estimated capital base of NZ$3.4 billion and distribute around NZ$136 million per annum.

Thirteen NZ funds are known to distribute over $1 million a year. According to Denis Tracey from Swinburne University of Technology the comparable figure in Australia is twenty-six.

For a country with a population of just over 4 million, Tracey says this is a remarkable achievement.

Jennifer Gill is the founder of Philanthropy New Zealand and serves on a number of Not for Profit boards and committees. On 1 August she and prominent Australian consultant and trainer, Genevieve Timmons (who has recently spent some time in NZ) will explore what the two countries can learn from each other in the field of philanthropy.

The seminar is being hosted by Swinburne University of Technology’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Philanthropy and Social Change.

There is no charge for this seminar, but bookings are essential.

Where: Room TD120, Swinburne TAFE (between Wakefield and Streets Hawthorn VIC. Parking available in Wakefield Street)

When: Friday 1 August 2003; 3.00 – 4.30 pm.

If you would like a registration form just send us an e-mail to probono@probonoaustralia.com.au.
