Each Australian state and territory has its own rules regulating fundraising activities. These laws are complicated and don’t cover fundraising activities using the internet and online platforms. A donation made online is not necessarily received in the same state or territory where the donation was made. So, online donations are often made and received in different places.
This means fundraisers must make sure they comply with the laws of every individual state and territory where a fundraising appeal is made and funds transferred.
