Govt Funds Philanthropy Research
Thursday, 10th September 2015 at 10:31 am

The Federal Government is to fund research to better understand philanthropic behaviour in Australia, Minister for Social Services, Scott Morrison announced during his address to the inaugural Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit in Canberra.

“The Government is providing up to $1.7 million to the Queensland University of Technology in partnership with the Swinburne University of Technology and the Centre for Corporate Public Affairs to deliver the Giving Australia 2015 research project,” Morrison said.

“The project will collect information from individuals, charitable organisations, philanthropists and businesses, such as the reasons people volunteer or give, and what approach best works to encourage giving.

“By drawing a picture of giving and volunteering behaviours, attitudes and trends, this project will improve our understanding of the capacity and needs of community organisations.

“It will establish good baseline data to measure progress on philanthropic giving, and a strong basis for policy decisions to encourage charity in Australia.”

Morrison said the research funding will support the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership which is examining trends and promoting best practice in the sector, and investigating how innovative investment and financing can better support a culture of giving and volunteering in Australia.

The Federal Government re-established the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership in October 2014 announcing the line-up of community and business leaders enlisted to advise on giving trends and promote best practice in the sector.

At the time the Government said it would provide $5.98 million over four years to the Partnership.
