Business Leader Survey 2007
The Business Leader Survey 2007, conducted by Perpetual, shows a trend towards philanthropy amongst Australia's business elite.
The report shows that:
- 23% of the leaders surveyed made a larger personal donation to charity last year than the year before
- 17% plan to give even more next year.
Most of those planning larger donations say they will do so because of increased earnings, leading to increased financial capacity.
The intention to establish charitable trusts and foundations was also surveyed.
- 27% of senior executives would consider setting up a personal charitable trust or foundation
- 26% would consider establishing a business foundation.
