About the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership
Levels of philanthropy have tapered off in recent years, with Australia now lagging behind other countries.
The Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership (the Partnership) has been re‑established to bring together leaders from the business and community sectors to promote philanthropic giving and investment in Australia. The Partnership is chaired by the Prime Minister, with the Minister for Social Services as Deputy Chair.
The Partnership’s role is to advise the Government on practical strategies to foster a culture of philanthropic giving, volunteering and investment in Australia. The Partnership’s focus is on priorities such as eliminating institutional barriers to philanthropic giving; considering the potential of innovative investment models; and building research on trends, education and best practice in the sector.
