Finding Strength in Unity: The Power of Collaboration

Check out our newest fortnightly editorial in the CQ Today (8th May 2024).


By joining forces with other community organisations, your club could extend your reach, increase your impact and help the greater good! This is an encouragement for you to take a step back and see where you could be encouraging other organisations to help you do the work you do (this is called a community development model).

A great example of a community development model is the Hook Up, the fishing event happening this weekend. They have a management committee of 8 people – they wouldn’t be able to do the 3 day event themselves. They have engaged the help of 20 other community organisations who all make money from the event too! They have various organisations such as sports clubs, service clubs and men’s sheds who make money from making and selling food, merchandise, the bar, security, mobilisation, demobilisation – it’s a huge team effort and everyone benefits!

Where could you be sharing resources, space, volunteers, in exchange for remuneration or reciprocal agreements?

This will also enhance the credibility of your organisation, demonstrating capacity for teamwork and a broader commitment to societal good, attracting more substantial donor support and elevating public trust and recognition.

If you’re volunteering for a not for profit and could use some help with collaboration, contact Not For Profit House.

Happy volunteering!!
