Celebrate the wonderful things that happen when community and philanthropy come together...
The Federal Member of Gilmore, Ms Ann Sudmalis will be celebrating the power of partnerships between community and philanthropy with some of the local Small Businesses in her Federal Electorate office this Wednesday night.
Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week (CPPW), which started last week, is an initiative supported through the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership to celebrate how partnerships between grass-roots community groups and philanthropy can help build strong and vibrant places to live and work. It is a chance for us to showcase and promote what Small Businesses are doing in our community.
“Quite often these businesses fly under the radar with the gift of giving for the community and I would like to acknowledge them for this,” Mrs Sudmalis said.
“This will be an ongoing event and if you are a charity, and you feel there is a small business which continually assists you, please let my office know so we can acknowledge them,” Mrs Sudmalis said.
There is a perception that philanthropy is something that is only done by high-net-worth individuals and businesses.
The reality, however, is that it takes place in communities across Australia every day, as people contribute their time and talent, as well as their own funds, to make a better community.
This initiative is an opportunity to highlight and showcase all that great work. Media Release
