The Australian Charities Fund is feeling energised and inspired after hosting two successful CEO lunches in early December 2015. The events build on networking lunches held during the June workplace giving month and brought together a diverse group of employers and charities all committed to one common goal - unlocking the potential of workplace giving and reaching the one million donors target.
Jointly hosted by the respective Chairs of the Charity Task Force and Employer Leadership Group - Dr Lisa O’Brien, CEO of The Smith Family and Richard Murray, CEO of JB Hi-Fi and held at PwC – ACF is grateful to the leading workplace giving organisations who attended and openly shared their commitment to workplace giving. The knowledge and experience that was shared was invaluable to the community organisations in attendance and inspiring to those employers who are just starting out on their workplace giving journey.
Much of the momentum that workplace giving is enjoying in Australia can be attributed to a generous spirit of collaboration – between employers, charities and across the industry. This goodwill was evident at the events, and ACF is looking forward for hosting more successful networking opportunities in 2016.
