Dog and Bone – walking our talk
We’re inspired by organisations that exist to make the world better. While our expertise is in technology, we do what we do to enable the people who are working hard to improve the world at our client’s businesses.
Over 18 years of working with NFPs and impact-driven enterprises, we’ve learnt the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities that help them succeed. We work with incredible organisations that serve the community like Beyond Blue, Anglicare Victoria, Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA), Brotherhood of St Laurence and so many more.
We are committed to creating “a better world through technology” and our best contribution to that is through working with and supporting direct impact organisations.
We’re a certified B Corp
Being a certified B Corporation means so much more than just having a badge of honour: it means we belong to a global community of like-minded businesses that we’re very proud to be a part of. Becoming a B Corp six years ago meant we were able to verify that our passion translates into impact.
Through technology and our Impact Grants program we empower smaller NFPs to have an even bigger impact in the communities they serve.
