Where: Melbourne, VIC + Sydney, NSW
When: Thu 24th May 2018, 12:00 – 14:00 (2 hours)
We invite members to join us for a combined Education and Corporate Funder Network Forum on Philanthropic Partnerships with Public Schools – Opportunities, Challenges and Rewards.
We are delighted to welcome David Gonski AC to provide opening remarks at the Forum. David will discuss the growth of philanthropic engagement in Australian schools since the Review of Funding for Schooling (the "Gonski Report") and the potential for more cross sector partnerships. David will also share his personal philanthropic commitment, through the Schools Plus' Pioneers in Philanthropy. This initiative reflects his view that every child should have access to the best possible education, regardless of where they live, the income of their family or the school they attend.
A roundtable will follow with a panel of leading individual and corporate funders, intermediaries and school leaders. The panel will share how they have identified and developed sustainable partnerships with schools, from life changing individual scholarships through to large scale capacity building partnerships. We will look at how to engage employees, teachers, students and other stakeholders, and explore opportunities for co-funding and collaboration.
