Why are we called 180 Degrees?
It’s because we work to turn good organizations into great organizations, challenges into opportunities, and ideas into reality. We’re focused on positive transformation. Transforming organizations, and – in turn – transforming lives
Founder and CEO
At the University of Melbourne, we are proud to drive 180DC's global mission.
We exist to provide non-profits with advice, future leaders with training and development, and vulnerable communities with more effective charity
180 Degrees Consulting is the world's largest consultancy for not-for-profits & social enterprises.
180 Degrees has grown from a single branch in Sydney to having 81 branches at top universities in 33 countries around the world. In the past year alone we have trained over 5000 future leaders, and completed over 800 consulting engagements.
The success of the 180 model speaks for itself. 96.8% of our past clients would recommend working with 180 Degrees to similar organisations. We do what we do because we believe in effective charity, and because we believe in developing the next generation of social impact leaders.
In the US alone, the non-profit sector spends $1.5 trillion each year supporting the most vulnerable members of our global community. Last year the sector accounted for 5% of US GDP, and employed 10% of the US labor force. There are 10 million non-profits around the world that each year work to feed, clothe, heal and support the disempowered and disenfranchised. And yet less than 1% of the non-profit sector has access to high-quality affordable strategic and operational advice.
