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) brings 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 identifying enablers to increase philanthropic giving and investment; sustaining and growing volunteering participation; progressing social impact investment in Australia; and working with relevant government and non-government bodies to address regulatory and social issues and promote productive approaches in the philanthropic, not‑for-profit, volunteering and social impact sectors.
