The Sydney Community Foundation hosts free, semi-regular philanthropy information seminars for its Professional Advisers Network, and interested professionals are welcome to join.

The network brings together a group of like-minded professional advisers who are passionate about supporting clients in their charitable giving intentions.

The workshops serve as a forum in which to share ideas, support, educate, and develop resources, and to raise awareness of charitable giving and philanthropic structures available to clients.

Sydney Community Foundation invites you to its July 29 Network event:

  • When: Tuesday, 29 July from 5.30pm -7.30pm
  • Where: St James Ethics Centre
  • Level 2, Legion House
  • 161 Castlereagh Street, Sydney
