Our Stories

At Australian Philanthropic Services we believe that both private and public ancillary funds provide an ideal pathway for philanthropy to grow.

By sharing our experience and expertise, we hope to inspire greater levels of giving in Australia. So it’s important to us to connect those who are thinking of setting up one of these funds, with philanthropists who already have one in place. Sharing experiences can be educational, inspiring, and rewarding.
