Collaborate with us

An opportunity to collaborate with thought leaders in the philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise sector

QUT’s Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) is a centre with BIG impact.

We are a national centre with cross-sector connections and international links. We conduct high quality research and foster leaders through education. And we can connect you to philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise thought leaders via the ACPNS Alumni Chapter Committee.

Diverse and dynamic with a deep understanding of sector complexities, our ever-expanding group of alumni are represented throughout the sector in Australia and overseas. Many are thought leaders in the philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise space, with over 81% leading people, programs and organisations in the sector. Networking with them can help you plan, build and enhance your social investment strategy and be at the cutting edge of sector leadership and transformation. By collaborating with ACPNS you will:

    CONNECT with sector decision-makers and influencers – current and future

    SHAPE the sector going forward by being a part of ACPNS thought leadership events and discourse

    TALK one-on-one with change-makers and sector experts on topics relevant to you

    EXPLORE opportunities to collaborate on transformational ACPNS research projects and programs

    PROMOTE your services at ACPNS alumni special events

    BE ACKNOWLEDGED at each event, on event communications and on the heavily accessed ACPNS website   


But there’s even more you’ll be doing when you collaborate with us…



We are very proud to have partnered with ACPNS for over 10 years now. Our connection with the Centre allows us to keep at the cutting-edge of what’s happening in the philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise sector.

It’s also introduced us to a vibrant network of astute, influential and passionate individuals and organisations who are advancing the sector.
