Three More Charities Deregistered

A not-for-profit vintage car museum, set up by millionaire philanthropist David Winston Turner, is one of three charities to be deregistered in the latest investigation by the ACNC over allegations of misusing charitable assets and failing to meet governance obligations.

The Turner Foundation museum and library for car enthusiasts, along with a Queensland Indigenous emergency relief charity and a LGBTI mental health organisation are the latest charities to lose their charitable status.

Turner, the founder of the charitable trust for the preservation, restoration and maintenance of significant historic and modern vehicles and the original trustee of the Turner Foundation, died in 2012.
