The research team at the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies is undertaking a survey to deepen the understanding of philanthropy for Indigenous causes. This is the fourth phase of research into Indigenous cause philanthropy and builds on in-depth interviews with grantmakers, grantseekers, and government.
The purpose of this research is to map the investment in Indigenous causes by philanthropy and to measure the leverage philanthropic investment has in procuring government funding. Uncovering the extent of financial leverage in a democracy more driven by budgetary considerations than at any time in history will provide powerful insight into the distribution of political power and the existing financial capacity of philanthropy to effect change in Indigenous wellbeing.
The research team is looking for representatives of philanthropic trusts, foundations, private and public ancillary funds and corporate foundations and trusts ( whether they fund Indigenous causes or not) who are best placed to report on their organisation’s financial support.
Responses are kept confidential: for further information see the Participant Information Sheet.
