A program is an activity or service that a charity runs (whether permanent or temporary, small or large) to pursue a charitable purpose for its beneficiaries.
The 2020 Annual Information Statement (AIS) was the first AIS that asks a charity for information about its programs.
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.
