Presented in partnership with Philanthropy Australia.

In this seminar Dr Ruth Knight from The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies at QUT will discuss the power of creating an internal culture of philanthropy and explore how you can use this culture to improve your organisation’s sustainability – and people’s joy in giving.

This interactive workshop is for CEO’s, Board members, fundraisers and anyone interested in the benefits of developing a culture of philanthropy. Attend the session to explore how intentionally creating an internal culture of giving in 2019 could improve your employee engagement and what practical steps will help you lead cultural change.
