Advocacy Updates

Update - Wednesday 13 December 2017

The Australian Government made three announcements which impact upon philanthropy in the week of 4 December:

  • Setting out reform proposals for the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) framework

  • The introduction to legislation to ban foreign donations, which will prevent international philanthropy funding advocacy activities by charities

  • The appointment of the Hon Dr Gary Johns as the new ACNC Commissioner

The following two short video updates from Philanthropy Australia's Advocacy & Insight Manager, Krystian Seibert, outline Philanthropy Australia's  response to these announcements - Members are encouraged to view them.
