Charity revocations hit record high in 2017

Charity compliance revocations have risen by 30 per cent, according to new figures released by the ACNC.

Four revocations were announced before Christmas, a fifth early in the new year.

A total of 26 organisations were stripped of their charity status in 2017 following investigations into misconduct and mismanagement.

The five most recent revocations – Pathways to Leadership, Synergy Active, Fitzroy Basin Elders Committee, Childs Vision, and the Australian Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence – were found to have breached the ACNC Act or governance standards.
