The Growth Project

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

We delivered this through an innovative personal development program that brought together charity and business leaders in an environment of shared learning. Throughout the 12-month course, participants shared knowledge and experiences, learnt how to run more effective and efficient organisations and developed 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.


By helping those who help, we have created connections and ripples of impact that will endure well beyond The Growth Project.
