Welcome to the very first episode of Philanthropy Australia's podcast, a destination for those interested in the issues, debates and thinking about philanthropy. In each episode, we'll bring you a conversation about issues engaging both the nations philanthropist and those in the for-purpose sector. Whether it's a discussion about what it means to be a philanthropist, guidance to improve your giving practice or information about Philanthropy Australia's signature thought-leading events, this podcast is for you.
Perpetual's Caitriona Fay and esteemed guest, Paul Brest from Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS), chat with Nick Richardson about the six-year partnership between Perpetual and Standford PACS. The trio then explores the importance of strategic philanthropy, and why it is easier said than done. (19 mins)
In the second part of this conversation, Brest and Richardson continue to dissect the nuances of strategic philanthropy, before moving onto advocacy in philanthropy and impact investing. (22 mins)
