The President of the peak philanthropic body, Alan Schwartz, said that Louise Walsh has led Philanthropy Australia through a series of successful and very significant changes with enormous energy and enthusiasm.
"These include the expansion of the Sydney office and the opening of offices in South Australia and Queensland; the launch of the New Generation of Giving program for young donors between the ages of 20 and 40; increased focus on policy and research; a redesigned website and increased media profile for PA; a sharp growth in membership of PA; and a very successful conference in September this year with over 700 delegates."
“The Council of Philanthropy Australia has appointed search firm Egon Zehnder to assist with the recruitment of a new CEO. We are pleased that Louise has agreed to remain in her role until Council has appointed a new CEO and to work with Council to ensure a smooth transition."
“The Development of the 2016‐2018 Strategic Plan will be the focus for Council and staff in the first half of 2015 and we will begin our consultations with members early next year.”
