Incorporated associations usually have a not-for-profit legal structure set up under a state or territory law. Generally these associations have a number of members, managed by committee that meets at least annually, guided by a set of rules and operate in the state or territory where it is incorporated. Incorporation is a voluntary, simple and inexpensive means of establishing a legal entity.
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.
