Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies alumni chapter

We take a keen interest in the success of students studying philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise. We donate book bursaries, sponsor a student prize and mentor students and alumni (currently for our postgraduate students and soon to be for our undergrads as well).

About our chapter

The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) alumni chapter includes students and graduates of the Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters of Philanthropy and Nonprofit studies. It also now includes an Undergraduate Membership group for students taking the Social Enterprise Elective BSB130. Our members represent many organisations in the nonprofit sector locally and internationally.

Our mission

Our purpose is two-fold. We assist current and past ACPNS students by enriching their learning experience and networks and providing practical support. Equally, we champion the goals of the Centre itself, from its research and engagement activities to its efforts to bring education and training to more people interested in social enterprise and the philanthropic and nonprofit sector. In doing so we support the development of the sector, the people in it and the communities they serve, locally and abroad.


ACPNS alumni chapter membership is free. To become a member, you will have studied a Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies degree or unit. To become an Undergraduate Member you will be studying or have completed BSB130 Social Enterprise. Come along to our chapter meetings and social events to enjoy the networking opportunities.
