Director (Founder & Charity Manager)
Phil, now semi-retired, comes from a background in Human Resource Management, Facilities Management and Property Development/Investment.
With a need to be doing something constructive with his now free time and a sense of social inequities and injustices, prevailing both at home in Australia and globally, Phil wanted to make a contribution to assist those who need
Commencing asThe Donate-A-$-A-Week Challenge in late 2013. This morphed into a 2014 New Year’s resolution and the now continuing development
of this program which is designed to encourage people from all income levels to make a commitment to regularly donate a small portion of their loose change – a minimum of just $1.00 pw; with the view that many small donations will accumulate to
make a real difference for those in need.
Maintaining steady growth, the original concept and organisation has, as of 1st September 2017 now evolved into a fully
Incorporated Association, now with a new name Donate-A-Dollar-A-Week Inc. or DA$AW for short.
Phil Lives in Upwey, Victoria.
