Our CEO, Jack Heath, introducing the Philanthropy Australia National Conference 2021.
"This is why I love the word philanthropy. I believe it is the word for our times. As you might know, philanthropy comes from Ancient Greek and it means “love of humanity”. As such, it calls for a movement from self towards other at a time when it’s so much all about me and mine."
The Australian Philanthropy Awards recognise and celebrate extraordinary achievements in contemporary philanthropy for work that is visionary, high impact and transformative. They also celebrate partnerships between philanthropy and for-purpose organisations and honour those who are working to create lasting, positive change.
The Australian Philanthropy Awards were generously partnered by Australian Community Philanthropy, Australian Communities Foundation, Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Australian Environmental Grantmakers Network, Australian Women Donors Network, Ninti One, Australian International Development Network, Australian Council for International Development, Macquarie Group and Grant Toolbox.
