What makes us different?

The things we know about make us stand out from the crowd. It’s a diverse mix of social, political, legal and technical knowledge sets that prepare us for working with you…

Our approach

Our approach leaves an impact.

Our top priority is to support our clients to achieve their goals. We form a thorough understanding of your organisation and we have close, long-lasting relationships.

We collaborate – building trust as a first step

We inform – in the most relevant and engaging ways

We lead – particularly when you want us to

Our approach is multi-disciplinary, drawing on the skill sets of our carefully curated team

Our advice is deeply contextualised – we stay at the forefront of industry developments and policy / legislative reforms

For-purpose organisations do an enormous amount of good work addressing social justice issues, and they are under constant demand to do ever more. At Purpose we love having a hand in social impact, and we do it by strengthening financial management and strategy.

Our team shares the social sector’s passion for equality and a strong civil society. We have also honed our specialist accounting and advisory skills to meet the needs of for-purpose organisations.

Respect for Australia’s first peoples

Purpose has worked with many Aboriginal people and organisations over a significant period of time. We deeply value these connections, friendships and cultural experiences. Purpose would like to acknowledge the elders past, present, and future, on whose lands we work.

“Bushmob has benefitted from Purpose’s clear and transparent presentation of financial information to our funders, which has increased our capacity to manage grants and be seen as responsible grant recipients.

Purpose provides regular site visits to truly understand our processes and to provide realistic training for Boards or on site financial staff if required.”

CEO, BushMob Aboriginal Corporation

“Outsourcing much of our financial management has proven really efficient and is a model that we will maintain with Purpose at the helm.

From clearer budget management systems, improved reporting processes and working with our Board of Governance, Purpose Accounting has provided us with a tailored package that means we can be confident about our financial strategy and processes.”
