Australians’ changing attitude to philanthropy


A quick link to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald this week which talks about how donors are paying more attention to the outcomes of their support and more interested in giving strategically and in a more sustainable way, rather than just doing cheque-book philanthropy.

The article also talks about how the recent legislative changes to Private Ancillary Funds has brought some stability into high end giving.

What do you think? Do you think only applies to high net worth donors want to see sustainable outcomes, or that anyone who gives anything is always thinking about the best way their support can help?
