Hundreds of charities revoked

Almost 700 charities have had their ACNC registrations revoked after failing to submit annual reports on two successive years.

Revocations will be published on the ACNC’s listing.  Revoked charities will no longer be able to display the ACNC’s registered-charity tick.

‘Revoking charities that fail to meet their obligations is an important part of maintaining trust and confidence in the not-for-profit sector.  The public need to be confident that the national regulator is displaying [only] eligible charities on the [register],’ Ms Pascoe said.

The register provides the public and donors with accurate, up-to-date information about Australia’s 54,000 charities.  Since it was launched in late 2012, it has been searched over 1.7 million times.

Donors, grant-makers and volunteers can search the register at acnc.gov.au/findacharity.  The list of revoked charities can be found at acnc.gov.au/doubledefaulters.
