Generosity Magazine

In 2015 Philanthropy Australia is partnering with Generosity Magazine to deliver two free editions of the subscription-based e-magazine to our Members and Associates.

As part of the partnership, we are working closely to deliver insights, authors, ideas and articles for the May Collective Impact and the August Government Partnerships special editions.

Members and Associates receive an e-newsletter when the edition is launched, and get access behind the paywall for two weeks from publishing – plenty of time to take in all the great articles.

The May edition was published on 7 May, and featured heavy hitters in the Collective Impact space including:

US collective impact experts Fay Hanleybrown and Jennifer Splansky Juster busting the myths, tackling the tough questions and providing the authoritative low-down on collective impact.
