We are proud to partner with The English Family Foundation, Social Traders and with the Ākina Foundation (NZ) to bring you this unique opportunity to support emerging social entrepreneurs by sending them to the Social Enterprise World Forum in New Zealand (September 2017).
The opportunity is to build a bursary fund (held by Social Traders, DGR 1, total target $95,000), to allow 50 of Australia’s highest potential social entrepreneurs to attend the Forum and participate in pre and post forum networking and support.
The project partners are currently seeking support from government and are also looking for support from philanthropic funders. The successful 50 social entrepreneurs will be selected by the project partners through an application process.
This is a great opportunity for philanthropy to come together to show our support for developing leadership and best practice within the social enterprise sector. The English Family Foundation are seeking co-funders and if you are interested in contributing please contact their Executive Officer Belinda Morrissey.
In conversation with Nicole Richards at the Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit, Daniel Lee shared his insights on topics including the role of philanthropy as a driver of systems change which addresses root causes of social challenges, the relationship between philanthropy and government and what the new political environment in the United States means for philanthropy.
