How important is philanthropy in funding the future? Transformational giving has accelerated in Australia over the last decade, and the Commonwealth Government has set ambitious targets to double it by 2030.
In the next instalment of Griffith University's conversation series, A Better Future for All, distinguished journalist and author Kerry O'Brien will talk with Professor Kristy Muir, CEO of the Paul Ramsay Foundation, about the role of philanthropy in realising important social outcomes.
Philanthropic partnerships are proving pivotal in improving social outcomes for people across Australia, working across a range of issue areas, from education to justice and safety. Philanthropy can step in and provide innovation capital and can bring together other key partners to accelerate change. So how do they go about it? How do they know they're making a difference?
As the chief executive of one of Australia's largest charitable foundations, and a professor of social policy, Kristy is uniquely placed to unravel the mysteries of the philanthropic sector. This conversation promises to be one that will deepen our understanding of the role of philanthropy and how private generosity and public spending are interwoven.
