COVID-19 and last summer’s bushfire season saw an increased strain on the NFP sector, which was reflected in the AICD’s recent NFP Governance and Performance Study which revealed that many organisations were facing considerable financial challenges even before these crises.

AICD Managing Director and CEO, Angus Armour said, “NFP organisations are a vital part of society and are under enormous pressure to deliver services to communities across Australia.

“I’m proud that the AICD continues to support future and current NFP leaders.”

Scholarships form part of the AICD’s strong commitment to the NFP sector. Free resources including the Not-for-profit Governance Principles, are available at: https://aicd.companydirectors.com.au/resources/not-for-profit-resources
