Corporate Philanthropy Peer Network: Participatory Grantmaking

Tue, 31 Oct 2023 11:30am - 01:00pm AEDT Sydney, NSW

The aim of this session is to provide an opportunity for our corporate members nationally to connect, have meaningful conversations and to learn from each other’s experiences and activity. It is also an opportunity to learn more about participatory grantmaking for corporates and how this can be adopted in your organisation’s approach to funding.   


Join us for this informative session and hear from Macquarie Group Foundation LinkedIn on how their organisations are evolving to become more equitable in their approach to grantmaking.
