About Us

About Us

At Purposed, we come to work every day because we want to help solve the most pressing problems of our time.

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges, many accelerated by the neglect of mankind.  And while everyone wants to make a difference, it’s just too hard. The gap between intent and action often sees lasting impact elude us. But it doesn't have to be so.

Purposed bridges this gap with a fresh approach that helps organisations and their employees discover their inner purpose, then connects them with leading charities to generate greater impact. Once this purpose is discovered it unlocks something special, gives meaning and sets them on a pursuit beyond their own self-interest to make the world a better place.

Forget optimising, we are focused on revolutionising giving with an unprecedented experience that seamlessly embeds the pursuit of purpose in to everyday life, helping in ways you can. Whether it be sharing your time, skills, funds, goods or services, you will be left with a true sense of fulfilment and wanting more.

We are not building a technology, rather a breakthrough experience that is easier, more meaningful and more impactful, to help solve the most pressing problems of our time.

Simply put, at Purposed our purpose is to help you discover yours.
