Take your organisation to new heights

Starting a charity can be easy. Turning it into an organisation that brings about sustainable change is challenging. Here at The Growth Project, our mission is to help you succeed in making a difference to the causes you care about.

Our one-year Growth Program will equip you with the knowledge, skills and leadership qualities you need to take your organisation to the next level.

Learn from shared knowledge

It can be lonely work building a charity. At The Growth Project, you’ll have the chance to learn from and share ideas with other charity leaders, business leaders and content specialists.

Lead with confidence

Through 1:1 coaching, peer learning and mentoring, The Growth Project will grow your skills as a leader. Learn how to articulate your vision and inspire people to support your cause.

Maximise your resources

As your organisation transitions from start-up to sustainable, you need to get the most from the time, money and people available to you. The Growth Project will teach you how.

Build your network

The Growth Project will give you the opportunity to build a network of like-minded peers and senior professionals who can support you into the future as you continue to build your organisation.

Secure sustainable funding

Sustainable funding doesn’t just help you achieve today – it enables you to excel into the future. Discover how to build relationships and deliver a compelling case for sustainable funding.

Invest your time

Paying for skills development can be hard for a charity to justify. Which is why we ask you to invest your time and energy in The Growth Project, whilst our supporters cover the cost of your fees.

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.
