Vic Philanthropy Partnership Plan
Thursday, 5th July 2012 at 11:12 am
The Victorian Government has released a plan to increase collaboration between philanthropy and government partnerships in the state.
The Guiding Principles for Collaboration between Government and Philanthropy was launched by Acting Premier Peter Ryan and the Office for the Community Sector with the Victorian Department of Planning and Community Development.
The report has been developed for philanthropic grant makers who are considering entering into a partnership with the government and explores the steps and issues that should be addressed by organisations to achieve a successful collaboration.
“The guiding principles have been developed in consultation with key philanthropic organisations to promote stronger partnerships and better support for the Not for Profit community sector,” Ryan said.
“Using these guiding principles, the Coalition Government and philanthropy can look forward to better ways of working together, to create resilient, liveable and prosperous communities across Victoria.
“We are fortunate to have a very generous philanthropic sector in Victoria that contributes significantly to many of the things that make our state great, like the arts for instance.
“Philanthropy Australia estimates that philanthropic trusts and foundations provide up to $1 billion annually to not-for-profit community sector organisations across the nation.”
