David says:

I am very pleased to support Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week as an ambassador. I am a strong believer in the need to grow philanthropy in Australia, and think that it is important to showcase the wonderful things that can happen when philanthropy and community organisations work together.

This year's theme building stronger communities together is very fitting - Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is an excellent opportunity to celebrate and promote Australia’s culture of giving.

Maggie says:

We’re very lucky to have such vibrant and diverse communities in Australia. We don’t just live in our communities, we live through them – I know that’s the case for my local community in the Barossa Valley.

That’s why I’m delighted to be an Ambassador for Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week, because it’s so important to celebrate the great things that happen when communities and philanthropy come together.

Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is a great opportunity for us all to reflect on how by working together, we can achieve more together and build stronger and more inclusive communities. I encourage you to join in the celebrations!

Come and join us, show your support and work collaboratively to demonstrate the power of partnerships.
