Welcome to Ozphilanthropy.com and thank you for looking in/stopping by.
I have been wanting to collate my thoughts on philanthropy in the arts and higher education in Australia as I work in the field and draw on lots of information I glean from all over the web in newsletters, through twitter and social networking/not for profit blogs.
I have not found a lot with a personal voice in Australia – possibly I am not looking in the right places – or possibly there is not much to find – but I thought I could put in my two cents worth and contribute some information now and again which I hope will help/assist or provoke debate and discussion.
I would love this site to become a healthy loud shouting match about how to approach philanthropy, how to donate, how to raise funds, where to look for information, where to go for academic and scholarly research as well as a link to views and opinions (and not necessarily only mine).
Please contribute, tell me what you would like to hear, what you would like questions to and I will seek out the information to the best of my ability.
Philanthropy and the way people consider contributing to not for profit organisations and causes is changing. This blog will attempt to keep up and provide relevant material.
