Philanthropy Australia National Conference
'Purpose: Is It Enough?'
5-6 September 2018
Grand Hyatt Melbourne

Managing the trade-off between head and heart is one of the toughest balancing acts in contemporary philanthropy. Does passion always serve purpose? How do you preserve your personal connection to a cause without sacrificing objectivity? Where does control end and trust start? At what point does an unrelenting quest for impact steer us down a path of diminishing returns?

Philanthropy Australia’s National Conference 2018 explores these themes and more. By probing the idiosyncrasies and complexities of philanthropic practice throughout the conference program, delegates will learn how their peers in the local and global philanthropic community are navigating the same tensions and trade-offs.

This year’s event will challenge, inspire and provoke your thinking on how we can best work towards a just society; philanthropy’s role in our evolving democracy; maximising impact and working across sectors to achieve sustainable systemic change.
