ACNC Guidance on Election Campaigning

The ACNC has released a new guide for charities to follow when advocating during the 2016 election campaign.

It is targeted towards charity boards and committee members to ensure that they “keep within the green zone to the kind of advocacy that is respectable”, according to ACNC Commissioner Susan Pascoe AM.

“We had identified the gap in the knowledge base and were keen to get it out before the election campaign. We have had concerns raised about activities of charities in the absence of any guidance and we were not in a position to take any action,” she told Pro Bono Australia News.
