Conflict of interest
A situation where personal interests conflict with the responsibility to act within the best interests of a charity. A conflict itself may be occurring, or potentially occur or perceived to be occurring and the potential outcome can be for financial, as well as non-financial gain. It is important to disclose and carefully manage any potential conflicts of interest.
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.
