Giving Australia 2016

Volunteering Australia is proud to be recognised as a sector partner of the largest ever research on giving and volunteering in Australia. The great news is volunteering time and hours have both increased over the past decade with 43.7% of adult Australians volunteering a total of 932 million hours in 2016.

Giving Australia 2016 was led by the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies at QUT and sponsored by the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership.

Giving Australia 2016 has collected comprehensive, up-to-date information from individuals, charitable organisations, philanthropists and businesses in Australia and provides critical information about giving and volunteering behaviours, attitudes and trends. This data collection builds on information gathered through Giving Australia 2005.

Giving Australia 2016 reports will be released progressively in 2017. Read Volunteering Australia’s media statement on Giving Australia 2016 – Latest findings on business and individual giving and volunteering here. Click here to see all reports released to date.
