Our engaged memberships are perfect for established givers or large for-purpose organisations, who want to grow their confidence and take their philanthropy to the next level.

With personal support, priority access to thought leadership and networking events, discounts and unfettered access to knowledge resources, engagement is just the beginning.

For funders, the ability to engage face-to-face with philanthropic experts and peers gives you access to personalised guidance and support that will help maximise your grantmaking outcomes. 

Engaged memberships also give for-purpose and non-profit organisations the ability to engage face-to-face with philanthropic specialists, helping you benefit from support that maximises your grant seeking and cause-related outcomes. Importantly, by contributing at the Engaged level, your insights, perspectives and knowledge also help inform and improve the philanthropic environment in Australia.
