Getting philanthropy to ‘yoga status’

In an article for Pro Bono News, Louise Kuramoto, Head of Philanthropy & Impact, shares five lessons the Australian Communities Foundation learned from a recent trip to the United States.

“It’s often said that philanthropic practice in the US is years ahead of Australia. It’s been a point of contention for many of us who work in the social sector, but one thing we can learn from our North American counterparts is their commitment to making giving mainstream.”

Louise gives great tips on on making giving mainstream, learning from our North American peers and why “philanthropy, and community foundations in particular, need to lead with and be unwavering in their values.”
