PAFs, PuAFs and the wider world of structured giving

Co-presented by Charlotte Grimshaw MFIA and John McLeod

Higher value individual giving is an important and growing part of the philanthropic landscape in Australia. Increasingly, philanthropists are using the various vehicles available to them, such as PAFs, to structure their giving. It’s now more important than ever for fundraisers to understand these trends and know what they can do to research these entities.

In this webinar with Charlotte Grimshaw MFIA and John McLeod, we’ll talk about:

  • Growth in higher value individual giving to date and future trends
  • What is a PAF anyway, and how is it different to a PuAF or a sub-fund
  • What sort of donors choose structured philanthropy and why?
  • The role of advisory and trustee companies
  • How to research these entities, with particular reference to PAFs

Presentation take-aways will include resource links, and author research insights from Charlotte and John on pertinent trends and publications in this space. The event will be held on the publication date of this year’s AFR Philanthropy Top 50, which John compiles.

This topic will appeal to fundraisers of all levels, particularly those working in philanthropy, corporate philanthropy, with philanthropic committees, and any and all looking to extend knowledge in this valuable growth area.
