Driven by Purpose

Driven by Purpose: Charities that make the difference explores the crisis of identity at the heart of Australian charities and offers practical advice on rediscovering purpose that drives and shapes.

Stephen Judd, Anne Robinson and Felicity Errington delve into the "who" and the "why" central to the purpose of a charity. This book analyses the historical and social context of Australian charities and considers the relationship between charities and Australian society.

Organisation leaders, managers and those interested in the way charities can impact their communities will find Driven by Purpose a refreshing and practical approach to this important topic.

And while the book draws on Australian experience, the principles and approaches described are applicable across the globe, not only for charities or not-for-profit organisations, but for individuals interested living life on purpose.

In his foreword to the book, CEO of World Vision Australia, Tim Costello AO, says: 'Those who lead not-for-profit organisations, and those who guide and advise them, will benefit enormously from the practical leadership advice that Anne and Stephen present - advice based on extensive experience.'

Driven by purpose was awarded second place in the Australian Christian Book of the Year award 2013.

Endorsements

“This is an especially timely book. It is also useful and therefore important because Judd and Robinson have identified a crisis facing Australian charities as one of identity; charities know not who they are or why they do what they do. Everyone involved in the sector should read it.” - Donald McDonald AC, Chair, The Australiana Fund, formerly Chair, ABC and CEO of Opera Australia

“Driven by Purpose provides a comprehensive and clear picture of the Australian non-profit market. But it’s much more than a needed analysis of how this complicated and nuanced sector works - it’s a call to arms about why efficiently run non-profits are the lubricant of a compassionate, civil society, and what needs to happen for them to be effective and purpose driven.” - Michael Traill AM, Chief Executive, Social Ventures Australia

“The book is a good read... it will be a work that will promote discussion and hopefully an improvement in outcomes for the sector.” - James M. Millar, Chair, The Smith Family

“This book is a thorough and thought-provoking review of the crucial roles of charities and the tenets of excellent leadership, management and governance that are needed to focus them on the delivery of their primary purposes.” - Mike Hudson, Author, Managing Without Profit
