Check below for a list of Philanthropy Australia and sector events for our members as well as the general public.

At Philanthropy Australia, the safety and wellbeing of our team and community is our highest priority. With the continued spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Philanthropy Australia is taking considered action to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our team, members and visitors, and is committed to following COVID-safe practices and social distancing requirements.  We continue to monitor the conditions and will update our response accordingly.

Where our offices are open to staff, we cannot accept visitors until further notice, and can meet in open-air or COVID-safe spaces. Please notify our team if you have been in close contact with any hot-spots, returned travellers or positive cases, and re-arrange your visit. We have transitioned the majority of our events to an online delivery model so participants can continue to connect from the safety of their homes and offices. Physical events will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and will be convened in line with COVID-safe requirements in the jurisdiction where the event is held. If any of Philanthropy Australia’s business activities are impacted due to the pandemic, we will communicate these changes with as much notice as possible. Philanthropy Australia's Cancellation Policy can be located here. For the latest information on the Australian Government’s response to COVID-19 please visit the Australian Government Department of Health website
