Be part of the conversation: National philanthropy conference heads to Adelaide for first time

02 May 2024

The biggest gathering of philanthropy and non-profit professionals happens every two years at the Philanthropy Australia conference.


The Wyatt Trust is delighted to see that this year, the conference will be hosted here in Adelaide - the first time it has ever been held outside Melbourne or Sydney.


The conference runs across three days in August (Monday 5th – Wednesday 7th).


This year’s theme is ‘Shifting Perspectives, Shifting Practice’. The full conference program promises to include sessions that appeal to a wide range of audiences, with opportunities for learning, networking, storytelling and celebrating achievements.


“Having the conference take place here in Adelaide is such a great opportunity to shine a light on the work of South Australia’s philanthropy and not-for-profit sector,” says Stacey Thomas, CEO of The Wyatt Trust and Board member at Philanthropy Australia.


“We hope to have as many representatives from our local sector at the conference as possible. To bring those local voices and experiences to the conference and share in the conversation will, I believe, be very valuable.”


Significant savings are available on conference registration fees during the month of May, with additional discounts for Philanthropy Australia members. Early bird tickets are on sale until 31 May here.
