Let's Celebrate

We have announced the 2016 #CPPWeek grant recipients. Nineteen groups will share 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 will shine 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. It is an opportunity to share knowledge and best practice and to strengthen or develop new relationships and partnerships. There are a number of tips and resources on the Inspiration page of this website and read some case studies from last year’s grant recipients sharing how they work in partnership to help build inclusive, resilient and vibrant communities.

We will shortly be posting on this page 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 and @CPPWeek on twitter to help spread the word of the power of philanthropy working in partnership with communities across Australia. 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 #CPPWeek.

In the meantime here is the list of celebrations that took place during last year’s #CPPWeek.
