About Us

The NFP Mentor Program is a partnership between KILFINAN and Our Community's Institute of Community Directors Australia.

KILFINAN Australia

Kilfinan Australia's mission is to build not-for-profit leadership through mentoring and corporate relationships.

Inspired by the UK Kilfinan Group, Kilfinan Australia was launched in 2014 and operates nationally in Australia and New Zealand.

Kilfinan Australia provides confidential, free, one-on-one mentoring to the CEOs of charities and not-for-profit organisations.

The ultimate aims of Kilfinan Australia are to:

  • Build not-for-profit leadership by drawing on the skills and experience of senior corporate and public sector relationships.
  • Enhance the understanding between corporate and not-for-profit organisations.
  • Strengthen the overall capacity of the not-for-profit sector.

Kilfinan's corporate mentors bring a breadth of knowledge and interests to their mentoring relationships. Each relationship is unique and created by the two individuals involved.

Once matched, a mentor and mentee structure their relationship to fit their specific needs and styles of interaction. Rather than give professional advice, the mentors work with the mentees to help them come to their own decisions. Mentors and mentees usually meet at least five to six times per year.
