FREE LECTURE: UWA Business School - CSI Public Lecture with Vanessa Meachen
|UWA Business School - CSI Public Lecture with Vanessa Meachen : Philanthropy in Australia
Recent media attention has focused on the comparative lack of philanthropy from Australia's highest earners. Our wealthy non-givers have been described as "morally bankrupt" and displaying "utter greed and selfishness". Are Australia's high net worth really that bad? Why aren't they giving? Should they give more? And what would encourage them to do so?
This lecture will present the findings of a 2010 study on giving among Australia's high and ultra-high net worth individuals, comparing them to their international counterparts and identifying strategies to encourage more of them to give - and the givers to give more.
