A volunteer is someone who renders a service or takes part in a transaction while having no legal concern or interest. Volunteers help charities in many ways such as preparing food, visiting elderly people, to being a board member. They are vital to the not-for-profit sector and play a major role in the sustainability of the sector.
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.
