Queensland University of Technology has released the first of a series of blogs about the progress and focus of Giving Australia 2015.  Dr Wendy Scaife explores the need for continued research into giving and volunteering and the benefits to the non-profit and philanthropy sector in her blog, why research giving and volunteering?

Giving Australia 2015, an initiative of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership, will provide information about giving and volunteering behaviours, attitudes and trends in Australia.  This includes the giving of time, information, goods and services, voice and influence, as well as money, to improve the wellbeing of humanity and the community.

This research will refresh and expand on information gathered through Giving Australia 2005 and will include individuals, charitable organisations, philanthropists and businesses in Australia.

The Giving Australia 2015 team will provide regular blogs on related topics over the next few months.

Further information about Giving Australia 2015 can be found on the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership research project webpage.
