The Australian Charities Report 2018 is the sixth annual analysis of the information the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission receives from charities in their Annual Information Statements.
The data shows that charity sector revenue grew by 6.4% in 2018, more than the Australian economy in the same period.
