Southbank hosts philanthropy conference Image

More than 50 leading philanthropists gathered at the Melbourne Recital Centre in Southbank during September for the 2014 National Philanthropy Conference.

Trendsetters and visionaries from Australia and overseas joined delegates from the philanthropic, advisory and not-for profit sectors to discuss and debate global trends at the two-day conference.  

The International Keynote Day on Tuesday September 2, saw the likes of indigenous leader Noel Pearson, Ian Potter Foundation CEO Janet Hirst and Minderoo Foundation founder Andrew Forrest, address participants.

The biennial conference, bringing more than 700 delegates together, aims to raise the awareness and importance of giving in Australia, and help inspire funders, potential funders and grant seekers.

The next philanthropy conference will be held in Sydney in 2016.
