Philanthropy Australia has commissioned a landmark project to benchmark the operational resources of Trusts and Foundations across Australia and New Zealand.
The peak philanthropy organisation has contracted research consultancy Effective Philanthropy to carry out what has been described as the first study of its kind in Australia.
“Funders want to better understand how to structure the operations of their trusts and foundations, and be able to compare what they are doing and the costs that they are incurring against those of their peers,” Effective Philanthropy Director, Regina Hill said.
Hill said the research would provide comparative information on topics such as staff numbers and costs, external service/advice provision and costs, grants management and CRM software and costs, and investment management costs.
