You're invited to Philanthropy in the Pub – a conversation for new and emerging philanthropists. This is an opportunity for like-minded individuals to get together in a relaxed environment and lead discussions on social change.

Trevor Thomas joined Ethinvest in 1997 having just returned from 6 years in South America working in economic development. Trevor graduated in Economics at Sydney University and has an MBA from Eastern University in Philadelphia. He was awarded Certified Financial Planner status having completed the Deakin University program in 2003. Trevor is currently a Trustee of the John T Reid Charitable Trusts and the Ross Knowles Foundation and assists a number of charitable trusts and not for profit organisations with their investment strategies.Trevor has a long-standing interest in development and advocacy, until late 2010 he chaired the board of TEAR Australia.


Sue McKinnon is a founder and director of the McKinnon Family Foundation which directs much of its funding towards advocacy in the areas of climate change, energy markets and human rights issues both here and abroad. A background in finance, small business, teaching and overseas development combined with a commitment to peace and social justice have seen her arrested for occupying Scott Morrison's office over the indefinite detention of children, and she has plenty to say about challenging structural inequity in ways that shift power.


Joel Pringle has spent over ten years bouncing between community development work and research, policy and advocacy. Currently an Advocacy Campaigner at The Benevolent Society, working on campaigns to increase the well-being of older Australians, Joel also counts working with public housing residents across Sydney and campaigning for the Australians for Affordable Housing in the lead up to the 2013 Federal election as highlights. Joel’s approach to advocacy and grassroots campaigning is influenced by his experiences working directly with communities, volunteering in various community governance roles and with working in the not-for-profit sector, alongside a commitment to research and experience in the political nature of social change.


Cost of the event includes 2 x drinks and canapes and an awesome prize to be won!

Look forward to seeing you there!
