Generous South Australians: May 2022

Generosity comes in many shapes and forms, and on Tuesday 17 May 2022 over 100 of our members and supporters gathered at Adelaide Oval for our annual Generous South Australians night. 

On this night that we celebrate the impact of philanthropy in our community, five of our members of diverse backgrounds, interests and ages – Carla Grace Orlwitz, Fatima McHugh, Paul Mayers, Sef van den Nieuwelaar, and ambassador Raymond Spencer – spoke about their motivation for giving and passion for philanthropy and Impact100 SA. We also screened a video from the US founder of the Impact100 collective giving model, Wendy Steele (click here to watch).

The chair of our Grants Assessment Committee, David Walker, announced the 15 organisations that were longlisted to proceed to a full application.

Thank you to our generous hosts, the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority, who donated the venue and food for our event and the people at Central Audio Visual for donating the AV services for the night.

Thank you also to our new member, Michael Bois from Beg Your Pardon, for donating two gift vouchers to the value of $300 each as lucky door prizes. Last but not least, thank you to our wonderful Events Committee, Nickki Hamdorf and Jackie Newton and helpers for organising the night. As always, our events are reliant on the generosity and efforts of many people.
