HCA Event Reports - November 2017

Event Report - Monday Club Lunch with Tim Costello AO, 6 November 2017

Over 30 members and guests gathered in 3 states to hear Tim Costello hosted in JBWere Melbourne by Justin Greiner. The video conferencing was so clear, those of us in Sydney and Canberra felt like we were in the same room. Tim gave a broad overview of the nonprofit, or 'for purpose' sector as he prefers to call it. Despite there being 54,000 charities in Australia, many of them with income of less than $50,000 per year, and average donations now at only 0.4% of salary (Tim' father used to donate 10% of his teacher's wage) he was resounding in his belief that Yes, charity does still matter.
