Two new reports in the Giving Australia 2016 series have been released by the federal government, revealing more about the philanthropy landscape in Australia. The reports show that large businesses (with 200 or more employees) represented only 0.2% of all businesses, yet gave $9 billion in their last financial year, 51% of the total business giving in Australia.

Meanwhile, small business leaders are seeking opportunities to move more of their giving away from cash donations and providing goods and services, towards partnerships with not-for-profit organisations, despite small businesses not having the resources of large businesses.

The rise of volunteering through the workplace is also highlighted in the reports. 63% of large companies manage a workplace volunteering program, as do about 30% of mid-sized businesses and 6% of small businesses.
