CSI Swinburne has just begun working on a project sponsored by the Prime Minister’s Business Community Partnership. This project is a landmark study into giving and volunteering in Australia with Giving Australia 2015. CSI Swinburne is delighted to be partnering in this major research project led by the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies at QUT.
Giving Australia 2015 will collect comprehensive, contemporary information on giving and volunteering by individuals, charitable organisations, philanthropists and businesses throughout Australia. This will enable Giving Australia 2015 to provide critical information about giving and volunteering behaviours, attitudes and trends.
This data collection will refresh and expand on information gathered through Giving Australia 2005, to improve the understanding of philanthropic behaviours by individuals and businesses in Australia and to provide baseline data. Giving Australia 2015 is expected to be completed in late 2016.
