Innovation in Philanthropy

The philanthropic and ‘for purpose’ sector plays a vital role in the social fabric of our City, our State and our Country.

Like many other sectors, philanthropy, charity and not-for-profit (NFP) has been impacted by economic, regulatory, and demographic shifts, and the traditional philanthropic model is being disrupted and rethought.

Through necessity, the sector is embracing innovation and change.

Join us for a practical and interactive session, exploring the theme of innovation and disruption in the sector, including:

  • The current role of Public Benevolent Institutions and their unique application to collaborative place based funding
  • Philanthropy and private sector collaboration
  • The rise of social enterprise
  • Trends in private and corporate philanthropy
  • Consolidation of charity and NFP entities
  • Successful collective impact

Our expert panel comprises:

Andrew Fairley AM, Consultant at Hall & Wilcox Lawyers, Chair of the Sir Andrew Fairley Foundation, Chair of the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education, Deputy Chair of the Mornington Peninsula Foundation and Chair of Equipsuper
