Let's Celebrate

LightnUp_WildThing_OriginalThe inaugural Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week celebrations were a huge success. Celebrations took place along the length and breadth of Australia during the Week.

This included 23 groups who received grants to kick-start their celebrations. The recipients were spread across each state and territory in urban, rural, regional and remote areas. The celebrations took different forms, although many involved a film / documentary, a history book or ‘story so far’ and case studies highlighting the outcomes and impact of projects supported. These films and books were launched at events, some of them listed below, held between 7-13 December, which was designated as Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week. Read the announcement from the Minister for Social Services to see the full list of 2015 grant recipients.

Later this year, we’ll add the list of events planned for CPPW 2016.  We would love to know what you plan so please complete our event submission form and we will add it to the list, which will also help inspire others.

If you are using social media, please include the #CPPWeek hashtag, to help spread the word. And please make sure that you visit our Facebook page too, to see how this year’s planning is coming along, and the events taking place during CPPW.
