Each year since 2015 Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has hosted The Swanson Society Dinner to honour and recognise our donors who have planned to leave a gift in their will to the Foundation. This year we welcomed 120 guests to a special 95th anniversary Swanson Society dinner at the Melbourne Town Hall.

Inspiring philanthropy is at the heart of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation’s commitment to educate our next generation of donors. Since 2002, Youth in Philanthropy has been an important program within the Foundation’s community engagement program.

Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation was delighted to welcome Fred Blackwell, Chief Executive Officer of The San Francisco Foundation (TSFF) as our guest of honour and orator, at this year’s Inspiring Philanthropy Oration.
