CEO Maree Sidey is Pro Bono’s Changemaker of the Week

“Most people would associate philanthropy with wealthy individuals and families, donating money to causes they care about and want to help.

But Sidey, and the Australian Communities Foundation, is trying to harness the power of smaller, collective giving, connecting donors to organisations and issues of social importance.

She’s aiming for a democratic form of philanthropy, one where everyone can play their part and call the shots to create change.

In this week’s Changemaker, Sidey talks about how she got started, the community foundation movement on a global scale, and where it will go from here.”
