The future of philanthropy in a changing civil society: In conversation with Stanford PACS

Stanford PACS

Now, more than ever, we must discuss the changing nature of technology, race, and civil society. The global COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated the global inequalities that exist, shown not only by the effect of the crisis, but also by the response to it.

This crisis lets us reflect upon these inequities and ask the questions that will allow us to build resilience and strengthen our global response to these issues.

On Thursday 6 August, you can join international sector leaders from Stanford University’s Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) and Australian philanthropy experts from Perpetual, including Lucy Bernholz, Jane Magor and Rob Reich, for a live panel discussion.

Hosted by Catriona Fay, this FREE webinar will offer new perspectives on the key role of philanthropy and the NFP sector as we venture into a post COVID-19 world where our impact is ever important.

This webinar is facilitated by Perpetual and Stanford PACS, in partnership with ASF.

We encourage you to challenge your thinking and get involved by registering here.

Fulfil your dream of studying an MBA - and do it with a 100% scholarship - thanks to ASF and Kaplan Business School.

We're offering TEN not-for-profit leaders the chance to complete a world-class MBA qualification with a scholarship valued at $40,800.

Recent scholarship recipient, Nikki Jordan of Grand Pacific Health Limited, began her MBA in 2019 and is already finding it valuable. “I have already gotten more from the course than I had hoped. It is no stretch to say that if it wasn’t for ASF and KBS providing such a generous scholarship, I would not have been able to enrol in this MBA."

Successful applicants will be able to study online or at any of the five campuses of Kaplan Business School, with a full-time or part-time study load, beginning in either Trimester 3, 2020 or Trimester 1, 2021.

Good Governance for Charities and Not-for-Profits on Frontlines 

Hosted by the Governance Institute of Australia

As a result of the recent Australian bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic, charities and NFPs are not only playing a more crucial role than ever, but are also facing a range of unique challenges. Our friends at the Governance Institute of Australia have identified some of the many of the challenges impacting the delivery of sustainable services in the NFP sector, including the need for:

  • Urgent regulatory reform, especially in fundraising
  • Strengthened governance systems to gain continued community support for operations
  • Sector sustainability through the recovery phase – workforce, fundraising, resources, revenue and bridging finance

To address these challenges, Governance Institute of Australia are hosting an online briefing session on Thursday 18 June 2020 from 11:00am-12:30pm. The session will also discuss the ACNC response to COVID-19, cornerstones for good governance and decision-making, and the role, influence and impact of sector directors during a crisis. 

Join a panel of NFP experts, including David Crosbie of Community Council for Australia, Sue Woodward of Justice Connect, Belinda Dimovski of the Australian Red Cross and Anna Longley of the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission.
