Givewell Charity Awards
Friday, 16th May 2008 at 2:32 pm

Givewell has announced its Good Giving Guide Charity Awards departing from its usual annual corporate awards.

The winners are:
Best Practice Not for Profit: The Fred Hollows Foundation
Best Community Project: Welfare Rights Centre (SA) Inc. – Housing Legal Clinic (HLC)
Best Communications Program: Lifeline Australia – ‘Help a Mate’ Suicide Prevention Campaign

Now in their fifth year, the Givewell Charity Awards have previously been presented in association with Ethical Investor’s Australian Sustainability Awards.

This year they departed from the corporate awards to join forces with The Good Giving Guide. The Good Giving Guide, published by Penguin Group (Australia).

The publication is described as the first book of its kind to inspire readers to give, or give more, to Not for Profit organisations and charities. It includes practical tips on individual giving, setting up trusts, business giving and corporate volunteering, along with in-depth analysis of one hundred Australian charities.

Written by Lyn Amy and Mary Pearce, with fundraising and financial information supplied by Givewell, the premise of the in-depth guide is that more people would give if they had more information about the charities and how best to support them.

The Guide was launched in Melbourne along with the Charity Award Winners.

Givewell Executive Director Michael Walsh says the process for each award involved the compilation of a detailed report on each candidate which was supplemented by interviews with CEOs from the short-listed charities and a peer review by members of the Givewell team.

Here’s a breakdown of the finalists and winners:
