Our Partners

Building genuine partnerships across the philanthropic, corporate and government sectors is vital to achieving our mission to lead an innovative, growing, influential and high performing philanthropic sector in Australia.

If you share our drive to create a more giving Australia by taking a stronger leadership position and becoming a catalyst for greater giving at all wealth levels, we welcome the opportunity to partner with you.

We aim to achieve progress and growth in a highly engaged, collaborative and accountable way. Our partnership opportunities range from supporting innovative initiatives aimed to grow new segments of the philanthropic sector, to assisting greater sharing and collaboration within the sector or providing resources that promote a more effective sector.
