About this report
The Philanthropy Australia Better Giving Telescope is a community created report driven by Philanthropy Australia’s members.
In late 2022, Philanthropy Australia was keen to take the pulse of the sector to help identify the trends, issues and opportunities that will shape the giving agenda in 2023.
We produced a survey that asked 6 open questions. Individuals were invited to complete the survey, with responses being anonymous. 101 people participated, drawn from across Australia. Participants were from a mix of organisations – funders, non-funders and professional advisors. The 2022 survey has been run as a pilot and we anticipate the Telescope becoming an annual and more in‑depth initiative.
Within the report you’ll find:
- 10 big ideas that will matter
- 5 big world issues
- Influences and restrictors on giving strategies and philanthropy
- Opportunities and challenges for 2023
To find out what’s inspiring, exciting and keeping the sector hopeful as we head into 2023, check out our Better Philanthropy Telescope report, available now.
