Sporting activities undertaken only as a means of furthering a charitable purpose –Includes providing opportunities for people with a disability to participate in sport that they would otherwise be unable to and using sport to ensure young people (who would otherwise disengage from school) continue their schooling. Example: a school for young offenders who have disengaged from mainstream schooling ran an AFL training program with the local AFL club to increase engagement and attendance at school.
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.
