While the ACNC does not regulate fundraising, it does consider the way charities conduct fundraising a crucial aspect of good governance and practices must comply with the Governance Standards. Appeals and fundraising campaigns are a significant part of the sector’s engagement with the community, and must be conducted in ways that maintain and enhance public confidence. Regardless of whether donations are sought in person or online, the manner of the approach must comply with relevant state or territory fundraising laws, be in the best interests of the charity and meet community expectations.
