Impact 25 Nominees Unveiled
23 November 2015 at 11:44 am
From CEOs of some of Australia’s largest charities and the Prime Minister, to one-person teams, the Not for Profit sector has spoken and nominated a wide range of people for the second Pro Bono Australia Impact 25.
Almost 200 people from across Australia and almost every aspect of the for-good sector have been recognised for being the most influential.
It is the second time Pro Bono Australia has called on those within the sector to nominate its champions.
After two weeks of voting, the top 25 influencers will be unveiled, acknowledging them for being leaders in a sector that accounts for 4.3 per cent of Australia’s GDP and employs over one million people.
With hundreds of people taking part in the nomination process, CEOs dominate the list of nominees, with 63 being chosen.
There were also former and current prime ministers, 2015’s Australian of the Year, and an author.
A large number of nominees also came from the executive level of Not for Profit organisations.
Last year’s Impact 25 was made up of a wide selection of household names, including World Vision CEO, Tim Costello, and domestic violence campaigner, Rosie Batty, both of whom have been nominated again this year.
Voting is now open and will close on Thursday 3 December.
Everyone who votes can go into the draw to win one of two free tickets to the Fundraising Institute of Australia's 2016 conference valued at $1,750.
