Australia's young and wealthy need to be a lot more philanthropic - and realise that the time for giving is now. That is the message from visiting 36-year-old philanthropist Daniel Lurie, the founder of a non-profit group in San Francisco that has raised $60 million in the past eight years to eradicate poverty. Mr Lurie, who as the stepson of the late Levi Strauss & Co chief executive Peter Haas was raised to respect philanthropy, is speaking in Sydney and Melbourne this week as a guest of Philanthropy Australia.
The Australian Government has announced a review of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) legislation.
Advocacy & Insight Manager, Krystian Seibert, outlines Philanthropy Australia's engagement with the review.
