Australians and the art of giving

Australians are generous when it comes to donating to charities and philanthropic causes but, as a wealthy nation, we can always do better.

The devastating series of bushfires, flood and the COVID-19 pandemic over the past few years have demonstrated that, when others are in trouble, Australians help those in need. In 2020, according to the latest Australian Charities Report, Australians donated about $12.7 billion to worthwhile causes. An increase of 8% on the previous year.

Much of this giving is in the form of personal donations and fund raising for registered charities. However, there is also a lot of important work being done by individuals through their own philanthropic enterprises and charitable bequests.

We examine the latest trends for supporting worthwhile ventures and the different ways that you can become involved.  To read the full summary, click here
