Community Recognition Program

Daniel Kelliher

Wills and estates lawyer Daniel Kelliher is helping make it easier for those who want to give something back to the community they care about.

For the past nine years he has offered his services to not-for-profit organisation the Australian Community Foundation (ACF).  It  makes philanthropy more accessible, with donors able to set up a philanthropic fund which supports worthwhile community projects.

Thanks to Kelliher's efforts, donations to the ACF have increased, his behind the scenes work helping it deliver programs such as a grant for a literacy tutor at The Social Studio – a cafe, shop and fashion label offering training for former refugees.

Monash University-trained Kelliher works at Russell Kennedy as Special Counsel-Wills and Estate Specialist and has been an LIV Accredited Specialist in wills and estates since 1996.

He is active on the ACF professional advisors committee and promotes awareness of it amongst legal, financial services and accounting networks.  The connections he has made have led to more donations and therefore more worthwhile projects.

These include ACF support for the establishment of the Aurora Education Foundation, a pilot project for indigenous high school students.  Its support, including tutoring, mentoring, books, computers and work experience, is aimed at having all those taking part complete Year 12 and be eligible for university.

Under ACF's legal structure, individuals, families, groups, corporations and not-for-profit organisations can establish philanthropic funds, with all donations pooled and invested.  Kelliher's help means this giving is hassle-free, with the income from the investments used to support charitable projects and community organisations.
