Measuring Philanthropic Impact [SA Member Event]

Tue, 21 Feb 2023 05:00pm - 07:00pm Adelaide, SA

There are different ways to understand measurement and impact for philanthropy. There are also varying ways to research and interpret outputs, outcomes and impact.

Please join us from 5-6pm to ‘experience’ impact by participating in VIP tours of MOD’s new immersive FLEX exhibition and enjoy a drink and canapes.

At 6pm we will hear from our co-hosts and panellists and answer some of your burning questions. Our co-hosts and panellists will discuss themes, including:

  • What is impact – for funders, fund seekers and society?
  • How do we know what we are doing is working and for whom?
  • How / can we measure tangible and intangible impact?
  • How do we start to include beneficiaries’ voices and address power imbalances (themes from our 2022 Telescope Survey)

We will also be releasing Philanthropy Australia’s latest report: ‘Insights from Australian Philanthropy’s response to the COVID-19 Crisis’ which has funded by the Nunn Dimos Foundation, and asking:

  • How much of the ‘old normal’ do we want to become the ‘new normal’?

This event is generously co-hosted by University of South Australia (UniSA).
