Data-driven insights from Perpetual’s IMPACT Philanthropy Application Program
Every year, through Perpetual’s IMPACT Philanthropy Application Program (IPAP), we invite applications from NFPs across Australia seeking funding. In FY22, we committed to distribute $34 million to those NFPs through this process.
The program also yielded a rich return in data, drawing on nearly 1400 applications from around 1000 organisations.
So what did that data tell us? You can find out everything by downloading the report itself. But here are some key points.
- The social, financial, health and mental health damage wrought by Covid, lockdowns and other restrictions has increased the workload and stresses on the community sector.
- Funding to regionally based organisations and programs increased in FY22. In particular, funding for mental health rose nearly eightfold. That’s a welcome trend given the toll Covid and natural disasters have taken on regional areas. As more people shift to the regions, continuing philanthropic support for those geographies will be vital.
