Charities are delighted that progress is being made to fix the duplication and red tape that engulfs any charity seeking to fundraise online or in most parts of Australia. CCA Chair Tim Costello said, ‘governments and communities across Australia will gain increased value from the donations and funding charities receive if Treasurers follow through on their commitments and jointly remove the interstate road blocks on fundraising.’
We are an independent member-based charity peak body dedicated to building flourishing communities by enhancing the extraordinary work of Australia’s not-for-profit sector. We do this by changing the way governments, communities and the not-for-profit sector relate to one another. In particular, this includes establishing a regulatory environment that works for charities and community organisations – not against them.
