The announcement was made at the alumni group’s inaugural Liffman Lecture to an audience of graduates, current students, academics and industry leaders.
The SPSIA Fund, a Charitable Fund Account of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, has become a hallmark feature of the alumni group, with donations given by alumni and friends to support the provision of scholarships for students studying Swinburne University's Master of Social Investment and Philanthropy.
The Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, Catherine Brown said it was a wonderful achievement, “On behalf of the Foundation’s board and staff I would like to congratulate SPSIA for reaching this incredible milestone and launching the Liffman Lecture in honour of Dr Michael Liffman.”
It is hoped that the continued growth of the Charitable Fund Account will contribute to funding the course's experiential grant-making unit.
Swinburne University's Master of Social Investment and Philanthropy was created by Dr Michael Liffman in 2002, with many alumni now occupying leadership roles in the philanthropic and social impact sector.
