The Australian Philanthropy Awards recognise and celebrate extraordinary achievements in contemporary philanthropy.

The new deadline for the 2019 Australian Philanthropy Awards is Friday 24 May, 5.00pm AEST.

The Australian Philanthropy Awards celebrate work that is visionary, high impact and transformative, the partnerships between philanthropy and for-purpose organisations, and honour those who are working to create lasting, positive change.

The categories are:

Leading Philanthropist

Australian philanthropy’s highest honour and it is awarded to an individual philanthropist whose work is visionary, high impact and transformative.

Best Large Grant Award
Recognises significant achievements in best practice grant making and it celebrates the delivery of a co-designed vision of change by the giver and the doer. This award is for grants over AUD $50,000.
Best Small Grant Award
Recognises that having impact and affecting social change does not always involve large amounts of funding. This award is for grants up to AUD $50,000.
Environmental Philanthropy Award
Is for current achievements from funding initiatives invested in projects or organisations that specifically support the environment, or – where a project or organisation’s main focus is in another issue area – there is a significant co-benefit to the environment.
Gender-wise Philanthropy Award
Is for current achievements from funding initiatives that advance gender equity through direct investment in projects or organisations that support women and girls, or the integration of the gender lens. The funder can be investing in women and girls either locally or internationally.
Indigenous Philanthropy Award
Is for current achievements from funding initiatives that advance Indigenous communities, support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and promote reconciliation in Australia.
International Philanthropy Award
Is for current achievements in Australian international philanthropy. It is for grants allocated outside of Australia that help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Last year Andrew and Nicola Forrest took out the major category, leading philanthropist, following in the footsteps of Ian Darling and Audette Excel.

Nominations will be reviewed by the selection panel in mid-June for announcement at the Australian Philanthropy Awards celebration on Monday 22 July 2019 at the Art Gallery NSW.
