A gift is given willingly to someone without payment; a present. It may come in the form of money, goods or other property. Some charities may provide gifts to individuals – including current or outgoing responsible persons, members, staff or volunteers – as a gesture of gratitude and appreciation for their service.

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.
