“The Evolution of Philanthropy in WA and Nationally”
There has been a significant change in the approach to philanthropy over the last few years in Australia. In the past, many charitable donations were kept secret, or at least not publicised to any degree, at the express wish of the donor. There were several reasons for that. One (not the only one) may be a reluctance to be labelled, derisively, a “tall poppy”.
Nowadays, however, there is a growing trend for large donations to be publicised, as is frequently the case in North America. It may be argued that this is a healthy trend, leading by example and encouraging others to be more philanthropic.
Certainly, in recent times, there appears to have been a heightened awareness of the importance of philanthropy, and an increase in charitable donations.
