Strategies for Increasing High Net Worth and Ultra High Net Worth Giving. Philanthropy Australia, February 2011
This report for the Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs was prepared on behalf of Philanthropy Australia by Effective Philanthropy. Overall giving levels as a percentage of GDP are slightly lower in Australia than in the UK and Canada, but in general Australian high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals tend to give at a relatively low level. The report includes comparative statistics such as giving as a percentage of taxable income and trends in giving in Australia. It also examines ways to increase high net worth giving in Australia and makes specific recommendations. This report is available on the Philanthropy Australia website.
