Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1. Where does Giving Guide obtain a charity’s information?

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 monthly to reflect the latest version of the ACNC charity register.

All information currently displayed on Giving Guide is collected from the ACNC & ABR websites. If you find any discrepancies, please inform us so we can remedy the situation.

If your data is incorrect 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 your charity cannot be found through the location search you may need to alter the address provided to the ACNC. Our geolocation service can miss certain types of addresses (i.e. Level, Suite, Room, Building, Floor, etc.).

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.
