The John Villiers Trust are very excited about being an inaugural partner of the new Queensland Funders Hub where we can share ideas, expertise and resources while working closer together to create social change with other philanthropic organisations.
After working from home for much of the past year, many of us are excited to be back in the office. We have come to appreciate how our physical workplace not only encourages teamwork and creativity, but also supports our emotional wellbeing.
A co-working space can be an exciting environment offering flexibility, collaboration and networking, all at a reduced cost.
Three philanthropic organisations have come together in Brisbane to form a new co-working space. Inspired by the Community of Giving approach, the team from Hand Heart Pocket, the Charity of Freemasons of Queensland has invited The John Villiers Trust and Philanthropy Australia’s Queensland Manager to share their space in Ann Street Fortitude Valley.
The new Queensland Funders Hub has a few permanent workspaces still available, a shared communal kitchen, as well as bookable touch-down desks and meeting rooms.
Jack Heath, CEO of Philanthropy Australia, welcomed the launch of the Hub as a positive and exciting development for the Queensland philanthropic community.
Amanda Williams, the new Queensland Manager of Philanthropy Australia will be based out of the Hub. “We want to connect with funders of all types, large and small, new to giving or established, from family foundations or corporates. Together we can encourage more and better philanthropy in Queensland and into Queensland,” said Amanda.
