IMPACT Philanthropy

Philanthropy and philanthropists – at Perpetual we have been connecting the two since 1886.

We’re passionate about helping philanthropists give in a way that creates real community benefits.

We can help you and your family give in the most effective way: leaving a legacy through your will, setting up and administering your charitable trust, helping you grow your donation so that it gives in perpetuity and matching your philanthropic vision with the right causes and charities.

We also believe good philanthropy is about giving Not-for-Profits (NFPs) the tools to generate more impact from all that they do.

That’s why we refer to our work with philanthropists and NFPs as IMPACT Philanthropy.

Applications for Funding are now closed.

Perpetual and philanthropy

  • Strengthening Australian Philanthropy

    We understand the challenges facing those working to better our communities. We provide resources and tools that help people in the sector stay up to date with big philanthropic issues and share new ideas that promote better NFP governance and outcomes.

  • Helping philanthropists

    We help individuals, families and businesses give well and give often. Our philanthropy team works with philanthropists by providing advice on everything from tax-effective giving structures, grantmaking, reporting and collaborative funding to trusteeship and family engagement.

  • Connecting Clients with NFPs

    It’s important for philanthropists to know they are supporting well-governed organisations aligned with their giving vision. We connect clients with effective NFPs working in the areas they’re passionate about.
