About Us

In 2018, it all began with an idea; To connect Not-For-Profit organisations with skilled volunteers, creating a ripple effect of social impact.

Since January 2019, that mission has expanded rapidly.

We are here to help charities find the people and skills they need to affect change. Communiteer is the facilitator that combines the technology behind social media platforms and job sites to form communities based on social good. This retains volunteers and builds ongoing collaborative relationships, empowering organisations to achieve more.

Our Why

Philanthropy is not a new concept.

Unfortunately, the number of philanthropists or ‘change-makers’ have been steadily declining and the way people want to participate in social good is also rapidly changing. ‘Doing good’ is now competing with longer work hours, more complex lifestyles, and the likes of social media for people’s time and attention.

Whilst technology can certainly provide people with greater access to information, it can also increase social isolation, which has long-term effects on the mental health and the community as a whole.

For those who are motivated to ‘do some good’, it is often very hard to find appropriate opportunities that resonate with their purpose and creates measurable impact. This leads to a decline in social participation and a lack of awareness of our current social problems.

This is where the Communiteer platform comes in.

We use technology to make it easy for more people to do more good. We are a social good network.

 

How it Works

Our Social Impact

Through careful research and testing, we have created a dedicated space for NFPs, volunteers and for-purpose organisations; 

where ideas flow and are shared across communities, stories are used to engage and stimulate the creative talents of volunteers, management and implementation of projects and programs on a cross-sector level is commonplace, and more opportunities are created to work towards and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Connecting diverse communties, skillsets and experiences to find strength in diversity.

Make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
