Where: Melbourne, VIC
When: Tue 17th Oct 2017 to Thu 19th Oct 2017 (3 days)
In 2017, the Annual Forum returns to Melbourne, to be hosted by the Australian Communities Foundation, the Inner North Community Foundation and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
Taking place across three days, the program features a mix of the practical and the inspirational, featuring interactive workshops and keynotes from international and local sector leaders, advisors, experts and thought leaders.
This year’s theme will explore the SMIRF capital of Community Foundations; that is the premise that meaningful change is achieved when Community Foundations leverage all forms of their capital; Social, Moral, Intellectual, Reputational as well as Financial; building networks and connections to foster a sense of belonging, reflecting and protecting our community’s values, leveraging our deep local knowledge, and using our positions as trusted local leaders to lift-up, empower and enfranchise community organisations or citizen groups that are often over-looked and disadvantaged.
In conversation with Nicole Richards at the Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit, Daniel Lee shared his insights on topics including the role of philanthropy as a driver of systems change which addresses root causes of social challenges, the relationship between philanthropy and government and what the new political environment in the United States means for philanthropy.
