Find a Charity

Giving Guide wants to make it easier for donors to find charites they want to support. We have proposed a few different ways to find a charity in Australia.

Discover a Charity

To discover a charity we have designed a few short questions to help guide you in deciding which charity you would like to support.

Search by Cause

Every charity nominates their main activity and three other activities that are a main focus of their work. This option provides results based on these nominations.

Find a Charity Near Me

This option finds a charity by location and its details. Helping you find charitable causes that you care about which may be in your community.

Advanced Search

The advanced search option gives you the ability to customise your search and order the results on a chosen criteria.

Explore the Database

We have put together a few charts to enable you to exlore the data set we use to guide donors.
