Submission on charitable fundraising in Australia

CA ANZ calls for and strongly supports a nationally consistent, fit-for-purpose regulatory regime

On 18 September 2020, CA ANZ responded to the Charitable Fundraising National Working Group (CFNWG) on the Charitable Fundraising in Australia - Proposed cross-border recognition model for charitable fundraisers discussion paper (discussion paper).

The discussion paper aimed to promote discussion on a proposed cross-border recognition model for charitable fundraising regulatory frameworks. 

In our response:

  • We call for and strongly support a nationally consistent, fit-for-purpose regulatory regime that will help charities and not-for-profits fundraise effectively.
  • We welcome the streamlining of the registration process (ACNC registration) and information sharing with states as a mechanism to achieve a single national fundraising licence.
  • Some of our members raised concerns in relation to some ambiguity in requirements under the proposed model that indicate the potential for additional state-based requirements.
