New Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has revealed that he both encourages and practices philanthropy because he has had a lucky life, and the PM’s official residence, Kirribilli House will be used to support good charitable causes.
Philanthropy Australia’s Acting CEO Chris Wootton said it was pleasing to hear that the new Prime Minister is a passionate advocate for philanthropy.
“We warmly acknowledge that he and Mrs Turnbull are both committed philanthropists themselves. We encourage all Australians to be philanthropists, and especially those in our community that have the ability to give back,” Wootton said.
The Australian Government made three announcements which impact upon philanthropy. In two video updates from Philanthropy Australia's Advocacy & Insight Manager, Krystian Seibert, outlines Philanthropy Australia's response to these announcements.
