QUT opens grantmaking survey

Queensland University of Technology's Giving Australia survey has opened, with philanthropists and philanthropic grantmakers invited to take part.

The online survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. Participants can be either:

  • an employee of a grantmaking philanthropic entity (eg: Foundation, Trust, Fund); or
  • a trustee or board member of a grantmaking philanthropic entity (eg: Foundation, Trust, Fund); or
  • a donor to a grantmaking philanthropic entity (including Sub-funds).

"At the heart of Giving Australia 2016 is the drive to establish a robust, contemporary evidence base that can be used to inform giving policy and practice in Australia," survey co-ordinators stated.

For more information about the survey, or to participate, visit the Giving Australia 2016 blog: http://blog.bus.qut.edu.au/giving-australia-2016.
