Information for Charities
Giving Guide has been created with charities in mind. We are dedicated to improving trust across the charity sector.
With the provision of user-friendly resources we hope to connect donors with charities by promoting awareness and transparency of information, so they can make well informed decisions about how they give.
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) where you can find helpful tips and learn more about our features. Building trust with our users is important to us, so if there are topics or questions not yet answered, please let us know and we will attempt to remedy them.
We are working hard on creating an accreditation for Australian charities that will certify to donors their charity is dedicated to the cause and upholds the highest of standards.
If you would like to be involved in the development of the accreditation please get in touch.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
All data is currently sourced from The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and the Australian Business Register (ABR).
Giving Guide is updated fortnightly or as needed to reflect the latest version of the ACNC charity register.
Yes the information is valid. All information currently displayed on Giving Guide is collected from the ACNC & ABR websites. No other source is used.
If your data displays incorrectly please ensure it is lodged accurately with the ACNC. If data is missing or incorrect on Giving Guide please get in contact with us.
If you cannot find your charity through the location search you may need to alter the address provided to the ACNC. Our geolocation service is prone to mishandling certain types of addresses (i.e. Level, Suite, Room, Building, Floor, etc.). Remove this type of information except for the street address (e.g. 3 Smith St, Smithtown, NSW 2440) and the charity will most likely be found, however this may influence correspondence with the ACNC. Please contact us if you would like to update your address details directly.
Giving Guide aspires to improve the awareness, reputation, governance and financial responsibility of Australian charities through information, analysis and evaluation in order to enhance the public’s perception of charitable organisations and their effectiveness.
