Dr Samantha Hardy
Passionate about “high impact philanthropy” Samantha (Sam) runs a small philanthropy and fundraising advisory business. Sam has worked in academia, policy development, fundraising and funding for 20+ years. She has experience across all the sectors related to social change, with unique insights into the challenges faced by non-profits and funders. Sam has analysed hundreds of nonprofit strategies over the years, giving her an instinctual understanding of what makes an effective policy change campaign. Sam says “In my view, Australian Parents for Climate Action have an excellent strategy, talented staff, amazing volunteers and relentless passion and energy. The incredible outcomes they have achieved in such a short time are proof to me that they are a high impact organisation.”
Sam also joined the Australian Parents for Climate Action Advisory Board because her other important job is being a mum to two amazing girls. Sam says “As a parent, I am deeply troubled by Australia’s lack of climate leadership. I want my girls to grow up knowing that I did all that I can. Volunteering my time to help grow Australian Parents for Climate Action is an obvious way to show them that I love them and that I care deeply about their future."
