Susan Pascoe AM concludes 5 year term as ACNC Commissioner

September 26th, 2017

Philanthropy Australia congratulates Susan Pascoe AM on the completion of her 5 year term as ACNC Commissioner this week.

This week marks the conclusion of Susan Pascoe AM’s 5 year term as inaugural Commissioner of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). Philanthropy Australia congratulates and thanks Susan for her work leading the ACNC, especially given the uncertainty surrounding the ACNC's future during much of Susan's time in the role. Susan and her team have been able to establish a responsive and effective regulator, which is genuinely committed to supporting charities and promoting public trust and confidence in them. It is rightly regarded as a global leader in the area of charities regulation and an example of best practice, a testament to the work of Susan and her team over the past 5 years.

Philanthropy Australia has had a very positive relationship with Susan and her team, and we have always valued and appreciated her professionalism, commitment and willingness to engage with the philanthropic sector. Philanthropy Australia was very pleased that the Australian Government announced in 2016 that it would retain the ACNC, and we look forward to Susan’s successor building on her strong record. We wish Susan all the very best in her post-ACNC endeavours!
