Event Details

Philanthropy is an important catalyst for social change, and plays a pivotal role in supporting communities and ameliorating disadvantage. But it is facing unprecedented challenges – the pace of change in a digital world, entrenched disadvantage, global disruptions and the capacity of stakeholders to support innovation collaboratively. Core to these challenges is the relationship between philanthropy and the not-for-profits who seek funding to support their work.

This session will see the current state of play in the Australian philanthropy sector outlined, using findings from the recently published Philanthropy: Towards a Better Practice Model report. 

Join this 60-minute webinar to gain a comprehensive understanding of:  

  • the challenges of the current practice model of philanthropy in Australia
  • the relationship between philanthropy and not-for-profits
  • the disconnect in perceptions between grant makers and grant seekers

The report identifies significant challenges and opportunities for change that will build towards a better practice model and the increased impact of philanthropy in Australia.

The findings also reveal a significant disconnect between not for profits and philanthropic perceptions, with philanthropists having a far more favourable view of the state of practices and relationships in the sector than their not-for-profit counterparts.

An important catalyst for better practice is a greater focus on the strategic impact of philanthropic initiatives and a higher priority by philanthropic decision makers, namely the philanthropists themselves, and the Boards and Trustees of philanthropic entities, to clarify their strategic intent and measure their performance against this strategy.

In this interactive, online webinar, you'll have the chance to have all your questions answered live by our expert presenter Liz Gillies.
