The Kilimanjaro name represents our tribal concept of being “farmers not hunters”. Our aim is to support the growth of our own business by nurturing long-term relationships with every client. Furthermore, our tribe embodies a unique approach of looking out for one another and recognising everyone is equally important. This culture is inspired by the African term “Ubuntu” essentially meaning: I exist because you exist. The entire team can truly agree that there is no friendlier or more collaborative place to work than Kilimanjaro Consulting.
Inspired by the positivity that surrounds our workplaces, we are encouraged to do more for people outside of our company. We understand the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and immerse ourselves in many different activities and hope to make a difference to the communities we operate in. We are proud to be a part of many great causes and will continue to help in different fields as we continue on our journey.
Who Kilimanjaro Supports
- Organisations where we feel we can make a meaningful contribution
- Charities that represent and defend the interests of their beneficiaries
- Foundations that are efficient in their use of resources
- Those which have a positive impact on the communities we interact with
With these guidelines in place, we have chosen to support the following organisations:
Cure Brain Cancer Foundation
- Strong patient focus
- Combines international findings and lateral thinking to reach their goal
Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is the largest organization for Brain Cancer research and awareness throughout Australia. They work with a strong patient focus to bring world-class clinical trials to Australia. They work towards their inspiring mission to increase 5 year survival to 50% by 2023. We relate to their approach as the foundation breaks through traditional concepts and finds smarter solutions to reach their goals by working collaboratively with each other and society.
Last year the Kilimanjaro Tribe supported the foundation by donating a gratuity from an MYOB market research session and also by taking part in an event within our workplace to raise awareness for the Beanies for Brain Cancer initiative.

Autism Association of Western Australia
- Supporting Early Intervention Programs for children with Autism
Kilimanjaro Consulting has supported a team member of one of our clients in her decision to courageously climb Mt Kilimanjaro with the sole purpose of raising funds towards an Early Intervention Program for children with Autism. This cause was very close to our hearts. Not only was this one of our valued clients raising awareness of Autism, but because of the true strength and courage required to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895m.
Our tribe wholesomely believe that being involved in Corporate Social Responsibility and encouraging awareness is a great way to impact society. Visit our website to learn more about Autism Association of WA work and how you can help.
R U OK? Day
- Tackling the stigma around suicide by encouraging general day-to-day human compassion.
Each September, Kilimanjaro Consulting takes part in The R U OK? Day initiative which aims to connect all Australians by creating suicide prevention awareness. Our tribal culture encourages a supportive and collaborative environment which inspired us to support this cause. We take part the initiative in several ways, by organizing morning teas within the office to provide opportunities for the tribe members to check in with one another, or providing our team leaders with RUOK Day Guides so that they are compassionate and understanding in their everyday duties. It is our shared goal to reduce the stigma around mental health and the fact that everybody’s equal.

Ronald McDonald House Charity
- RMHC helps families in need, keeping them closer to their sick children. They provide a stable component for families in situations of despair.
As the MYOB Diamond Partner, we have the privilege of supporting one charity by providing software sponsored by MYOB. Added to this, we contribute by donating our services. We are very proud to have chosen Ronald McDonald House Charities as they do unbelievable work creating the best possible environment for these families, while their children spend days or even months in hospitals.
The cornerstone program of RMHC, the Ronald McDonald House®, provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals. In 1981 the first Australian Ronald McDonald House opened in Sydney’s Camperdown. There are now 16 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
Kilimanjaro consulting have volunteered to participate in the ‘Make a Meal’ program at the end of the year. This gives us the opportunity to engage with families and achieve a fun and supportive environment by cooking dinner and giving them much needed downtime to relax and enjoy. Please visit their website to find out how you can help and check out photos and more information about the unforgettable day we experienced with our team.
We will continue to embrace these attitudes and proudly uphold our own commitment to maintaining a Social Responsibility Culture. Follow us on our social media channels to keep in the know
