Get ready to celebrate the wonderful things that happen when community and philanthropy come together...

Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week
5-11 December, 2016
Let's celebrate!

This is a chance for grassroots community groups and their philanthropic partners to showcase and promote the great things they have achieved together in cities and regions across Australia. It is also an opportunity to share knowledge and best practice, and to strengthen or develop new relationships and partnerships.

In 2015, twenty-three community groups in urban and rural areas received grants of up to $10,000 to help celebrate what they have achieved by working together in partnership with philanthropy. 

There will be grants on offer again this year but even if your group doesn't receive a grant, we encourage community organisations, philanthropic trusts and foundations, businesses and individuals to celebrate the impact of partnerships in our communities during Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week.

Check out the list of possible ideas or get some inspiration from the list of events that took place last year. We've also got some tips to help you plan a great event and to promote it. These are just a start... let your imagination go.

Once you have some great ideas in mind, and you wish to apply for the grant, read the guidelines to see if your project fits the criteria and download the application form.

Keep us posted on what you do via Facebook. 

And if you're stuck for ideas on how to build a great partnership read some case studies for inspiration.


Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is an initiative supported through the Prime Minister's Community Business Partnership and managed by Philanthropy Australia, in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
