ASF Partners with Stanford University and Perpetual in New Education Program

Stanford University ASF Perpetual Foundation

ASF is delighted to announce its latest partnership, with the Perpetual Foundation and Stanford University, to help boost the capacity of not-for-profit leaders and build more effective NFPs in Australia. We are particularly pleased that this development builds on and extends our longstanding partnership with Perpetual over the past six years.

Over the next three years, Perpetual, Stanford and ASF will support a program of research and practical learning activities needed by NFPs to thrive in the digital age. This program will be led by the Stanford Centre on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS).

Stanford PACS Executive Director, Kim Meredith, said: Having worked with major organisations in the philanthropic and not-for-profit sectors across the globe, we’ve seen the importance and value that a sound understanding of the digital landscape can provide.

We look forward to working with Perpetual, and their partners in Australia to help raise the bar in this field, and connect with Australia’s non-profit leaders. Additionally, Digital Civil Society is inherently global. This important partnership will build knowledge and resources that will benefit us all.

Perpetual Private National Manager Philanthropy & Non Profit Services, Caitriona Fay, said: “NFPs and philanthropists are still coming to terms with what operating in a digital world means for how they work with communities. This includes how we raise – and donate - funds for public benefit, how we capture, hold and use data, and what that means for privacy, through to the role of markets and social businesses in our economy.

“It’s important to ensure the individuals and organisations in this sector are responding to what the digital age means for society.”

The partnership between ASF, Stanford and Perpetual will enable original research to create practical applications for managing NFP challenges, US-based executive professional education at Stanford and Fellowships at the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford, the world’s first research and policy program dedicated to understanding the way private resources can be used for public benefit in the digital age.
