Welcome to Ozphilanthropy.com and thank you for looking in/stopping by.
Ozphilanthropy.com was started in 2010 when I wanted to collate my thoughts on philanthropy in the arts and higher education in Australia. I had been working in philanthropy for some years and the blog has drawn on information gleaned from newsletters, social media and not for profit blogs.
I first started blogging when there was not a lot of writing on philanthropy with a personal voice in Australia – so 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. Social media has become much more prevalent – dare one say, dominant, and there is a wider range of information available (sometimes even an overload), but I hope that ozphilanthropy remains relevant and that you will comment and participate in discussions on topics of interest to you.
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 your views and opinions.
Philanthropy and the way people consider contributing to not for profit organisations and causes is changing. This blog will continue to attempt to keep up and provide relevant material.
Please contribute, tell me what you would like to hear about, what you would like to know, and I will seek out answers and various viewpoints view to the best of my ability.
