Remuneration is the pay or other financial compensation provided in exchange for services performed (not to be confused with giving (away), or donating, or the act of providing to). Remuneration is used to describe payment made to board members for their duties. Charities can remunerate board members, but the decision rests with each charity and is carefully considered.
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.
