AMPLIFY AND ENGAGE BUSINESS WITH ONE MILLION DONORS
One Million Donors is an existing platform created to encourage giving across Australia. So far, WA
businesses are poorly represented either by lack of knowledge or engagement with the platform or by lack of action. How can we help raise the profile of this in WA and encourage more WA business’s to get on board to both record and increase their engagement with the NFP sector?
INCREASE EFFICIENCY IN THE NFP HEALTH SECTOR
This project will focus on improving efficiency in the NFP sector. It will build on the work of WAUC (Western Australian University Consultants) with a focus on the health sector.
The work has been further reviewed and Giving West would like to focus in particular on facilitating effective giving. The results show the health sector has several opportunities to explore further to get more effective use of resources in the sector. Taking learnings from other mergers in the sector, we are seeking a team to explore what efficiencies could be captures by setting up shared resources to reduce each NFP’s asset base.
INCREASE GIVING FROM A
In line with Giving West’s vision to Make Giving a Way of Living in WA, this project seeks to identify and implement techniques to encourage a younger demographic (school aged to young adult) to get involved in philanthropic activities.
This will help the NFP sector by giving them access to more resources, the time and talent of a younger cohort as well as strengthening WA’s network of individuals that make giving a way of living.
