Philanthropy Events – Melb and Sydney Oct/Nov/Dec


Two philanthropy events are coming up which should be great discussions.

The Australian Communities Foundation Annual Ethics in Philanthropy Debate will be held on Thursday 27 October at BMW Edge in Melbourne and will feature Rod Quantock and Stephanie Alexander speaking on the topic of Philanthropy – A Class Divide?

It’s a free event but you need to register. We wrote about last year’s debate in the post called: From Kant to Catherine Keener. This will also mark just over one year of ozphilanthropy.com!

and the Australian Women Donors Network will be presenting Abigail E Disney in both Melbourne (29 Nov) and Sydney (1 Dec) as their 2011 International Keynote Speaker at a gala dinner and film night. A bit pricier at $250 per head but certainly sure to be stimulating and inspiring.

Abigail E Disney is a documentary filmmaker and philanthropist and founder and president of the Daphne Foundation that makes grants to grassroots, community-based organizations working with low-income communities in New York City.

I will look forward to hearing your thoughts on both of these.
