Can’t attend in real time? You should still register; all registrants will receive a copy of each webinar recording.

This webinar mini series (each only 25mins long) will give you the short, sharp facts and figures of giving and donating in 2017-18 and examines the learnings for the sector. Based on the most current ATO taxation statistics, sector experts share their insights from the historical data. The first seminar is a general overview of the data by the leaders of Australian peak bodies together with insights from Prof Patrick Rooney who has led the annual Giving USA data analysis. The second and third seminars  examine donations to, distributions from and assets held by Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs) and Public Ancillary Funds (PubAFs).

Join sector experts and ACPNS researchers for this free, three-part webinar series and find out how YOU can use the data to advance your nonprofit’s mission.

Full and Summary reports for the 2017/18 stats will be available shortly. In the meantime, read more about the Tax-Deductible Giving project (and play with the data) on the ACPNS Giving Statistics page.
