Our Why

Philanthropy is not a new concept. It is the foundation that built the community sector in Australia – most charities were established through generous donations and operated purely by volunteers.

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 of individuals and the health of our 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 Communiteer comes in.

We’re all about creating social impact

Our online community is purpose-built to foster social participation by leveraging the technology behind social media and crowdsourcing platforms to increase user engagement and collaborative opportunities.

Communiteer aligns all communities, content and contributions on our platform to the UN Sustainable Development Goals so that you know exactly what your time and efforts are contributing to. These goals act as the universal language that aligns charities, corporates and change-makers together and measure how our collective efforts are creating social impact.
