AGM – Annual General Meetings
An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is usually held once a year where all members of a charity attend. The purpose of an AGM is to give members a report on the charity’s activities and finances for the previous year, provide the opportunity for members to ask questions, and to elect members of the charity’s governing body.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
