The Growth Project

The Growth Project is a non-profit organisation that supports small, successful charities to maximise their impact on the world.

We deliver this through an innovative personal development program that brings together charity and business leaders in an environment of shared learning. Throughout the 12-month course, participants share knowledge and experiences, learn how to run more effective and efficient organisations and develop their leadership skills.

The Growth Project is an ACNC registered charity.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.


We are creating a legacy through sustainable thinking and active engagement.
