A transformational role : donor and charity perspectives on major giving in Australia /

by Scaife, Wendy | Queensland University of Technology. Australian Centre for hilanthropy and Nonprofit Studies | McDonald, Katie | Smyllie, Susan.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. Queensland University of Technology 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011Summary: Tapping into the thoughts of nearly 50 Australians involved with major giving, this study seeks to know more about why and how people give in what might be called 'momentous' ways. It tracks both their triumphs and trials. Perhaps most importantly, it gives a public voice to the perceptions, attitudes, concerns and stories of Australians who have chosen to act philanthropically in a sizeable and ongoing way. In counterpoint, the views, experiences and frustrations of seasoned fundraising professionals who work to generate major giving across a range of causes form the other voices in this study. Thus, donors talk about giving, and occasionally raising support from their peers, and fundraisers talk about developing major gifts.Availability: (1)

Australia's first Rotary Club : a history of the Rotary Club of Melbourne. /

by Parnaby, Owen W.

Publisher: Carlton South, Vic. Melbourne University Press 2002Description: xi, 232 p., [8] p. of plates : ill.Notes: Includes index. Bibliography: p. 222-225Summary: The Rotary Club of Melbourne was the first Rotary Club in Australia. Since its inaugural luncheon on 21 April 1921, the club has had an outstanding record of philanthropic endeavour and charity work, as well as service to the cause of Rotary on the international scene. ; The list of members of the early Melbourne club reads like a Who's Who of the Australian post-World War I generation of businessmen. In later years, with the increase in the number of Melbourne-based clubs, not to mention the admission of women members in the late 1980s, the range and interests of members was less concentrated leading to a greater diversity of activities. The charitable work of the Melbourne club has led to many far-reaching social advancements. New benchmarks were set in the care of the elderly by the club's involvement with the Claremont Home for the Aged in the 1970s; 'Lifeline' came to the Wesley Central Mission with the club's help; work experience programmes for schools began following representations by the club to the Education Department; and the 'Very Special Kids' organisation developed into a major family support unit thanks to the involvement of Melbourne club members. ; Internationally, medical work in India, Vietnam, Indonesia and other countries has been supported or carried out by club members. The Melbourne club is now faced with changing social and economic conditions which are causing the breakdown of community cohesion. The first Rotary Club was born out of a response to the competitive and harsh business environment of Chicago in 1905. The Melbourne club is responding to the conditions by seeing them as an opportunity to expand the tradition of service.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
