Launched in July 2012, Guiding Principles for Collaboration Between Government and Philanthropic Organisations is a new resource for those practicing, or interested in, cross-sectoral collaborations.
Developed by the Office for the Community Sector, Department of Planning and Community Development in Victoria and Philanthropy Australia, Guiding Principles offers a set of pointers to facilitate successful partnerships.
There are 15 key principles, structured under four headings:
1. Creating the environment
2. Shaping partnerships and building relationships
3. Decision making and Management practices, and
4. Evaluation and sustainability
Guiding Principles forms a framework for approaching new, and strengthening existing, collaborations between philanthropic and government co-funders of the not-for-profit sector.
The Foundation Project is an initiative sponsored by the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation on behalf of the following organisations:
The key outputs from The Foundation Project are a set of core principles for grant application and reporting information as well as a common application form and acquittal report for small grants.
Grant-makers are encouraged to trial the common form templates and to provide feedback on them to Philanthropy Australia.
