The AICD is a signatory to the joint statement on fundraising reform. Through this statement, we are calling on Australian governments to work together to provide charities and not-for-profits with a nationally-consistent and fit-for-purpose regulatory regime. We propose a simple way to provide a better framework for fundraising – clarifying the application of the Australian Consumer Law and repealing existing inconsistent and out of date state and territory regimes.
This statement is jointly signed by the CEOs of eight leading sector bodies comprising: The Australian Institute of Company Directors, Justice Connect, Governance Institute of Australia, the Australian Council of Social Service, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, Community Council for Australia, CPA Australia and Philanthropy Australia.
