Community and philanthropic organisations have joined forces to urge all members of Parliament to pass the Charities Bill 2013, which is due to re-enter the House for debate this week. With only days to go until Parliament concludes, the groups are calling for an all-party approach to deliver essential reforms for the vitally important charitable sector. Louise Walsh of Philanthropy Australia looks forward to the passing of the legislation, saying 'a uniform definition of charity throughout Australia will reduce red tape, in turn spearheading a new era of strong growth for charitable giving in Australia.'
The Australian Government has announced a review of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) legislation.
Advocacy & Insight Manager, Krystian Seibert, outlines Philanthropy Australia's engagement with the review.
