about us

Catalyst is a rapidly expanding not-for-profit organisation charged with creating a culture of philanthropy in professional Australia.

Every professional can have the opportunity to explore for themselves how they might like to contribute in society. This will unlock an enormous resource of skills and social leadership to advance societal well-being and sustainability in Australia.

Catalyst is being developed to provide a forum for that important exploration and to support other organisations to create that type of culture themselves.

From our popular regular events, to the Catalyst Charity Team, Catalyst delivers a mix of activities that provide professionals with varied opportunities to explore, on their own and with their peers.

Since its launch in 2001, Catalyst has delivered over 60 great events involving Australia’s foremost social leaders and rooms filled with Sydney’s inspired and motivated professionals. Click here to find out about our past and upcoming events and seminars.

The Catalyst Charity Team is a team of professionals brokering exciting opportunities for professionals to support Australia’s more innovative charities. Click here to find out more.
