Trustee Handbook launch & workshops

We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Trustee Handbook: Roles and Duties of Trustees of Charitable Trusts and Foundations in Australia, published by Philanthropy Australia and supported by the Westpac Foundation.

The Trustee Handbook provides an easy-to-understand, plain language guide to what trustees should do and also what they must do, without offering legal advice. It is an ideal base for new trustees and foundation staff; useful to those providing advice on setting up foundations and trusts; and an excellent reference document and aide memoire to those already familiar with its subject.  Created in consultation with our Members, this Trustee Handbook is an essential document for PPFs, Community Foundations, Family Foundations, Charitable Trusts and Ancillary Funds.

The Trustee Handbook will be launched in Sydney and Brisbane in July. Philanthropy Australia will also be running workshops for trustees to attend in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.  Dates, cost and further information can be found on the Trustee Workshops page on our website.

The Handbook will be available for free electronic download following its launch.
