We believe small non-profits are the fabric that hold Australian communities together.

However, much of the expertise and support services are targeted at the big charities and has a price tag to match. Australia’s small charities are forgotten, even though they employ over 80,000 people and engage almost 1.4 million volunteers.

So, that’s why the Small Non-Profits Alliance exists. We’re here to help you connect, learn and grow. Or even just to remind you that you’re not alone.


Join the Small Non-Profits Alliance here and you’ll get:

(Advanced Membership only)

Those of us working in small non-profits would say we are frugal and more resourceful than larger ones, but that’s not always the perception from the wider public. Many people think – whether rightly or wrongly – there are ‘too many charities’ and small ones should amalgamate with the big ones.

If nothing else, being part of the Small Non-Profits Alliance demonstrates your willingness to collaborate and share resources wherever possible, ensuring you are working efficiently as well as effectively. A member badge for your website shows your supporters that you’re a proud part of the small non-profit space. Contact us to receive your badge.

Online Masterclasses

(Advanced Membership only)


The Alliance will host six educational webinars across the year to provide opportunity for your up-skilling and learning. With topics relevant to small charities, such as caring for donors without breaking the bank or affordable ways to achieve social media success, we will have relevant presenters at our Online Masterclasses. There will be interactive engagement and plenty of opportunity to have your questions answered by an expert. You will be automatically notified via email when each masterclass is open for bookings.
Virtual Roundtables

(Advanced Membership only)

Our Virtual Roundtables will create an environment for an informal discussion about social issues, latest trends and opportunities for collaboration. You’ll have the chance to comment on emerging issues affecting the charity sector and small non-profits in particular. You will be notified via email in advance of each Virtual Roundtable event.
