The Guide to Giving is a guide to philanthropy for donors. Philanthropy is a voluntary donation of money, goods or time for the public good – sometimes called 'time, talent or treasure'. The Guide to Giving explains the different ways in which Australians can give. It contains worksheets so that you can focus your efforts and plan for the future, if that is what you wish. It does not contain legal information, which is best handled by a qualified professional, but it does list further resources including professional advisors, as well as websites and further reading.
