Governance

Philanthropy Australia is the national peak body for philanthropy and is a not-for-profit membership organisation. Our vision is for a More Giving Australia - to achieve more, and more effective, philanthropy.

Our membership comprises trusts, foundations, organisations, families, individual donors, professional advisors, intermediaries and not-for-profit organisations.

We are a growing movement of people and organisations who believe in the importance of giving and are proud to leverage our wealth and influence to create social change. As the national peak body we offer representation, networking, services and information to the philanthropic sector, as well as to segments of the not-for-profit sector.

In its simplest form, our governance approach and processes are designed to ensure we achieve these objectives effectively, ethically, in line with required regulations and standards, and in line with community expectations. These governance documents set out our internal processes and standards.
