Congratulations – but where do you go for support? In the past you have just been expected to learn-on-the-job or bring your experience with you? This is no longer considered effective nor good practice! Being a trustee of a Charitable Trust/Private Ancillary Fund not only comes with a very high level of accountability - but also the personal and collective joy and benefit of making a difference and having an impact through trying to solve some of society’s deeply entrenched and common problems.
As a new trustee, you bring new expertise, experiences, networks and skills into the mix – it is important that you find the best ways to contribute these – as you all collectively further steward the journey and personality of your philanthropic trust into the future. If you are a new trustee or would like to gain confidence in your role as a charitable trustee, Philanthropy Australia has a range of resources to support you.
