The AICD continues to advocate for a consistent approach to fundraising laws to ensure that red tape is not an obstacle to fundraising. We support a model that provides a simple single national point of registration, notification, regulation, audit and reporting for charitable fundraisers. In this regard, the AICD has worked with the #FixFundraising coalition on this reform for several years.
We understand progress on this matter has stalled given the various jurisdictions involved. On 3 August 2021, we lodged a submission urging the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to reinvigorate efforts to harmonise state and territory fundraising laws as a high priority.
The AICD’s submission is available here.
