PilchConnect would also not be able to assist not-for-profit community organisations without the pro bono assistance we receive from PILCH members.
We work in partnership with, and are grateful for the support of, the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) and Volunteering Victoria.
PilchConnect works with sister organisations QPILCH, PILCH NSW, and JusticeNet SA to provide support to not-for-profit organisations outside Victoria.
