Collective giving groups are playing an increasing role in philanthropy in Australia, according to research led by Creative Partnerships Australia.

20 September 2017

The research examines the characteristics and challenges of this collective donations model, where individuals come together and pool resources to fund projects for a range of charitable events, including arts and cultural activities.

The research was commissioned by the Department of Social Services (DSS) on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership. Creative Partnerships Australia gathered information from 17 giving groups as well as host organisations and charities that received grants.

Creative Partnerships Australia is supported by the Australian Government and brings donors, businesses, artists and arts organisations together to foster a more sustainable and vibrant Australian arts sector.

The report, Collective giving and its role in Australian Philanthropy, is available online at the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership website.
