Funding for Impact Masterclass
May 10 @ 8:30 am
May 10 @ 12:00 pm
April 17, 2018

The Social Impact Hub, together with strategic partner Philanthropy Australia, invites philanthropists and not-for-profits to a special masterclass with Dan Pallotta!

The masterclass will begin with a keynote address with renowned charity disruptor Dan Pallotta, whose TED talk Uncharitable: The Way We Think About Charity is Dead Wrong has been viewed over 4.3 million times. Dan challenges us to change the way we think about changing the world.

Dan’s talk will be followed by a Q&A where he will directly address greatest challenges facing attendees at the masterclass. After this, a panel of funders and NFPs who are already carrying out best practice in funding for impact will share their experiences and learnings.

Finally, NFPs and philanthropists will be invited to trial out the new tools that have been developed as part of the Funding for Impact project.

The masterclass also serves as the official launch for the Funding for Impact project. As part of the launch the Social Impact Hub will outline the pillars of the project and a new online hub for resources on the subject, including tools for funders and NFPs.

The focus on minimising administration costs is constraining the ability of many not-for-profits to innovate, take risks and scale their impact. The Funding for Impact project provides tools and advocacy to shift the way we think about funding and reporting, to reward charities for their big goals and their big accomplishments instead of equating frugality with morality
