Event description

Description

Philanthropy today is more organized, strategic, and global than ever before.

Driven by the belief that we all have a responsibility to each other and to the planet, and mobilised by technology and newfound connectivity, today’s next generation philanthropists are drawing on best practice from the private sector and the innovations of technology to tackle some of the intractable wicked problems of our era.

This set of individuals and corporations have greater resources, power, position and prerogative to participate in the solution. Their approach to philanthropy mirrors the rigour, structure, and expectations of investment return of the for-profit world, and they invest for impact.

This month Insight takes an inspiring look at three individuals who personify the tireless optimism and activism of new wave philanthropy, participating in the benevolent business of make our communities, our country and our world a better place:

  • Clare Ainsworth Herschell was the inaugural Next Gen Development Manager at the Art Gallery of NSW for 4 years. Clare is now putting her full energies to combatting climate change with initiatives such as an annual trip to the Heron Island research station with Professor Tim Flanneryand other change-makers across multiple industries;

  • Hamish Balnaves is CEO of the Balnaves Foundation and represents the second-generation philanthropy. His degree in Economics from Sydney University and his 10-year career as a teacher has put him in good stead to make strategic and informed decisions as the foundation disperses over $3 million annually to not-for-profit organisations that aim to create a better Australia through education, medicine and the arts;

  • Jane Jose is CEO of the Sydney Community Foundation. She brings decades of experience in working with the design professions, government leaders and corporate Australia to her philanthropy work at the Sydney Community Foundation. Through place-based giving and support for grassroots organisations, the foundation works to protect, support and enable women and girls in greater Sydney to thrive and fill their life’s aspirations.
