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 2016, nineteen community groups in urban and rural areas are sharing just over $152,000 in grants to help celebrate and communicate the power of partnerships during this year’s Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week, which will be held from 5-11 December 2016.

Each of the projects funded shines the spotlight on the many diverse ways that community groups are making an impact in their communities, with support from philanthropic partners.

You can find out what each of the grant recipients are doing to showcase the power of partnerships in the media release and gain inspiration for your own celebration.

Community groups are encouraged to hold a celebration during the Week, even if they didn’t receive a grant.

Check out the list of possible ideas or get some inspiration from the table 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.

We are in the process of updating the list of events planned for CPPW 2016 - so once you know what you plan to do please complete our event submission form and we will add it to the event list, which will also help inspire others.
