Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit

Where: Canberra, ACT

When: Mon 11th Sep 2017 to Tue 12th Sep 2017 (2 days)

The Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit brings together Australian funders, political leaders, and policy makers to meet at the heart of Australia’s political system. It is a unique event which helps philanthropy and government understand each other’s perspectives and priorities and how they can work together to achieve shared objectives. Given the changes we’re witnessing in democracies around the world, which was particularly apparent in 2016, this year’s event will also examine what these changes mean for philanthropy and its role as a catalyst for social change.
