Launched in July 2012, the Guiding Principles for Collaboration Between Government and Philanthropic Organisations is a new resource for those practicing, or interested in, cross-sectoral collaborations. Developed by the Office for the Community Sector, Department of Planning and Community Development in Victoria and Philanthropy Australia, the Guiding Principles offer a set of pointers to facilitate successful partnerships.
There are 15 key Principles, structured under four headings:
- Creating the Environment
- Shaping Partnerships and Building Relationships
- Decision Making and Management Practices, and
- Evaluation and Sustainability
The Guiding Principles together form a framework for approaching new, and strengthening existing, collaborations between philanthropic and government co-funders of the not-for-profit sector.
