Welcome to Episode 35 of Good Will Hunters! This week I chat to Luke Branagan, Director of Philanthropic Services at JBWere.
THIS EPISODE IS SPONSORED BY THE INTREPID GROUP, THE LEADERS IN SUSTAINABLE SMALL GROUP TRAVEL.
Prior to joining JBWere, Luke was the Executive Manager of the MLC Community Foundation, where he led the evolution of the strategic direction of the Foundation to focus on mental health outcomes. During Luke’s tenure, the Foundation was recognised as a philanthropic leader in measuring social outcomes, driven by innovative approaches to measurement and impact investment. Luke was also a member of NAB’s Corporate Responsibility Leadership team. Prior to this role Luke led the community program at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
Luke and I often see each other at events, and he always has fascinating insights to share about the sector, so I’m thrilled to finally have him on the show! In this episode we discuss how charities can attract investment aligned with their brand, the work of family foundations, the nature of endowment funds, and a lot more. This episode is a fantastic insight into financial literacy, and a must-listen for charities wanting to understand their financial options better.
