1st November, 2017

Five trends in Australia’s giving to charity are identified in the analysis of the latest tax data released by Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies according to Brisbane Times journalist Matt Wade.  They are:

  • The rich don’t necessarily donate the biggest share of their incomes
  • Some occupations stand out
  • There are signs we are finding it harder to be generous
