Activities include a charity’s operations and programs they undertake to achieve their mission, as well as the provision of funds or other support. They can be financial or non-financial. The activities that charities choose to describe their mission are based on the International Classification of Non-profit organisations.
When charities report their activities to the regulator they must select one main activity, then they are able to select as many general activities as needed to describe their programmes and activities.
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.
