This Consultation Paper outlines the background to a statutory definition, including previous recommendations and inquiries, as well as developments that have occurred since the 2003 consultation package on a charity definition was released. It discusses elements of a possible core definition of charity by raising for discussion possible refinements to the exposure draft of the Charities Bill 2003. It also covers Australian Disaster Relief Funds, interactions with State and Territory laws and transitional issues. The Consultation Paper makes frequent references to the exposure draft of the Charities Bill 2003.

A transformational role : donor and charity perspectives on major giving in Australia /

by Scaife, Wendy | Queensland University of Technology. Australian Centre for hilanthropy and Nonprofit Studies | McDonald, Katie | Smyllie, Susan.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. Queensland University of Technology 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011Summary: Tapping into the thoughts of nearly 50 Australians involved with major giving, this study seeks to know more about why and how people give in what might be called 'momentous' ways. It tracks both their triumphs and trials. Perhaps most importantly, it gives a public voice to the perceptions, attitudes, concerns and stories of Australians who have chosen to act philanthropically in a sizeable and ongoing way. In counterpoint, the views, experiences and frustrations of seasoned fundraising professionals who work to generate major giving across a range of causes form the other voices in this study. Thus, donors talk about giving, and occasionally raising support from their peers, and fundraisers talk about developing major gifts.Availability: (1)

Always say yes : the life of David Scott / [David Scott with] Carrie Hutchinson.

by Scott, David, 1925-2012 [author.] | Hutchinson, Carrie [author.].

Publisher: Crows Nest, NSW : Pier 9, Allen & Unwin, 2014Description: xi, 252 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (some colour), portraits ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes index.Summary: "Always Say Yes" is the fascinating account of the life of one of Australia's giants of social policy. 'I was 13 when I decided what I wanted to do in life was travel and have adventures, be of some use to other people, and have a family. Life worked out pretty much as I hoped.' Born into middle-class poverty in the 1920s, David Scott was on course for a corporate career until his uncle, Father Gerard Tucker, invited him to become part of The Brotherhood of St Laurence. Scott went on to become the director of the Brotherhood turning it into the most significant agency for social welfare in Australia. He also formed Community Aid Abroad (now Oxfam) and played a leading role in galvanising support for the East Timorese people when Indonesia invaded. Always Say Yes follows Scott's life and accomplishments and celebrates one of our giants of social policy. David Scott was born in Melbourne, where he attended Melbourne Grammar School. After leaving school early he joined the Argus newspaper while waiting to join the Navy. He became a member of the gun crew on the destroyer HMAS Arunta during the Second World War and was involved in numerous Pacific campaigns. He and his wife, Diana, had three children. Scott was described in his obituary as 'one of Australia's giants of social welfare and social policy'.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (4).

Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission Bill 2012 /

by Thomas, Matthew | Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. arliamentary Library | Pyburne, Paula.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. Parliamentary Library 2012Description: PDF.Other title: Australia. Parliamentary Library. Bills digest ; no. 21,.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 20 September 2012Summary: The purpose of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Bill 2012 (the Bill) is to establish a national regulator of, and a national regulatory framework for, the not-for-profit sector. This Bill is one of three in a suite of Bills which are being considered together. The other Bills are: the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (Consequential and Transitional) Bill 2012 and the Tax Laws Amendment (Special Conditions for Not-for-profit Concessions) Bill 2012. There is substantial evidence of the need for regulatory reform of the NFP sector. Further, it is generally agreed that establishment of a national regulatory authority and national regulatory framework is an essential component of this on-going process of NFP sector reform. As a consequence, and as a result of extensive government consultation with the sector over the Bills and the ACNC, those members of the NFP sector which have engaged in the consultative process are, despite some relatively minor reservations, strongly supportive of the Bills. Should the Bills be passed, and the ACNC established, then this should prove a significant step towards a more effective sector. However, the extent to which this will be the case will be heavily dependent upon how effective the Government and the ACNC are in negotiating and facilitating the reduction of unnecessary NFP reporting.Availability: (1)

by Australian Charities and Not for profits Commission ACNC mplementation Taskforce.

Publisher: Parkes, A.C.T. Australia. The Treasury 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2012Summary: This report provides information to the sector on the key action areas in the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC)'s regulatory approach. While the issues discussed in this report broadly affect the NFP sector, it relates only to registered charities (including public benevolent institutions and health promotion charities) reflecting the initial regulatory focus of the ACNC. It is the Government's intention that the ACNC's regulatory responsibility will grow over time to cover other NFP entity types. This report outlines the functions of the ACNC, issues raised in sector feedback, and the means by which the ACNC will address these concerns. It seeks to: assist charities to prepare for registration and reporting; ensure this important sector can continue to play a critical role in Australia's future; and allow Australians to be confident that the sector is strong and viable.Availability: (1)
