A group of Philanthropy Australia members have convened to co-fund the Australian Council of Social Service’s (ACOSS) 'Raise the Rate' campaign in the lead up to the 2019 Federal Election. The group aims to raise $1 million to fund a 12 month national advocacy campaign both through ACOSS and other strategies targeted at raising the weekly rate of Newstart Allowance by $75.
More information will be shared to Philanthropy Australia members as the campaign continues. If you are interested in joining the funders group or knowing more you can contact the convenor Paul Madden, CEO of Wyatt Trust via email.
