New research released into collective giving trends in Australia
The research report, Collective giving and its role in Australian philanthropy, sheds light on the emergence of collective giving, a relatively new model of giving in Australia that involves individuals coming together and pooling their resources to fund social change.
Partnership member Alexandra Gartmann said “the report highlights emerging trends in how people engage in philanthropy in the 21st Century. A key focus for the Partnership is to identify and encourage new forms of philanthropy, bringing these to the attention of those who want to give, and those who are seeking partnerships – be that in government, business or the not for profit sector – and reviewing how traditional frameworks enable or hinder new approaches that could benefit Australian communities”.
Partnership member Colleen McGann said “this important piece of research, along with Giving Australia, builds our knowledge and provides an invaluable basis for the Partnership’s policy advice to Government”.
This research is being released at forums in Sydney and Melbourne on 24 and 26 July 2017 by Creative Partnership Australia (CPA) who carried out the research, along with Philanthropy Australia and hosted by Perpetual.
The briefings will be an opportunity for the researchers to share the findings with the philanthropic and community sectors.
