The Giving Australia 2016 reports, commissioned by the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership, and researched and developed by QUT, Swinburne and the Centre for Social Impact, has now been completed.
Bite size portions are now available together with fact sheets, background papers and literature reviews (thanks Christopher, Wendy, Jo and your teams).
You can check out philanthropy and philanthropists, structured giving vehicles, bequests, individual volunteering, individual giving, what businesses think and the perspective of not for profit organisations.
This report has some comparisons to the research undertaken back in 2005 for the first ever Giving Australia national study. Because so much has changed (and yet stayed the same) there are some points of comparison which were more difficult to measure.
It’s great to have this resource which reminds us of what has happened, and how much scope there still is for growth in this sector.
Let’s hope that we don’t have to wait another 11 years for the next review of how we are travelling in this field.
