I joined Philanthropy Australia’s ‘New Gen’ group as I wanted to connect with like minded individuals and those in a similar position to me, and wanted to upskill myself in areas of managing future wealth and also learn about important causes. PA’s New Gen does deliver all of this. I’ve been a Member of New Gen for about 6 years now and the network I’ve built is fantastic. Being part of New Gen also helps me to keep my philanthropic journey front of mind and ‘on the agenda’ when life gets busy.

Philanthropy Australia has been a trusted source of information, advice and networks throughout my career in the arts and NFP sector. Philanthropy Australia has enabled us to connect with peers, resources, partners and funders in ways that has supported Guildhouse to thrive. We have benefited from connecting with thought leaders and best practice advice – I believe that Philanthropy Australia’s work supporting funders and NFPs strengthens the entire ecosystem. We continue to benefit from the resources, professional development and most importantly, the networks. We are working more effectively and strategically with our supporters as a result.

The Wyatt Trust has long been a member of Philanthropy Australia and values the ease with which we can bring a large staff and Board group together on emerging issues via PA’s events. Participating in the building of a vibrant philanthropic sector, with a strong presence across the country, forms part of the value of membership. This is one of the easiest ways to get involved while also benefitting from the knowledge and leadership of our sector friends and colleagues.
