About Us

A Membership Community To Improve Operational Excellence

Who We Are

The Centre for Social Purpose is a not for profit company limited by guarantee (ABN 23 623 022 266) and a registered charity through Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission (ACNC).


Our purpose is to support For-Purpose organisations to realise their aspirations through achieving operational excellence. The Centre is a member-led community which helps assist organisations to:
We do this by focusing on three key areas:

  • We Connect people and resources through Roundtables, Working groups, and facilitated forums
  • We Develop capability through cost-effective training and consulting, and access to best practices
  • We Reduce Costs through Group Buying discounts, resource sharing, and a Knowledge Hub

This is delivered with the help of For-Purpose sector leaders and practitioners who have each achieved success in different areas – as well as facilitators, consultants, and coaches with subject matter expertise and sector experience.

Our business model is based on funding from foundations that support sector capacity building initiatives, along with Workshop and Membership fees. 



  • The Board: Industry leaders and experienced consultants to provide oversight
  • Member-led: Member organisations have a say on where the Centre focuses energy
  • The Executive Director: Manages the Centre and leads service delivery implementation.
