Charities Crisis Cabinet Fundraising Reform Survey

16 April 2021

    The Charities Crisis Cabinet believes now is the time to achieve meaningful reform to Australia’s not fit for purpose and outdated system of fundraising regulation. Please take five minutes to complete this short survey on your experience with current disparate regulations across states and territories.


    Fundraising reform and relief from red tape is one of the first issues that was raised with the Charities Crisis Cabinet (CCC) as Australian charities responded to COVID-19 and bushfire recovery.
    Both the Australian Treasurer and the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements have acknowledged this issue and sought to advance the harmonisation of fundraising regulation by establishing a single national regulatory scheme. The CCC commends the Treasurer for elevating this issue into his discussions with state and territory colleagues.

    We now need your help to see States and Territories act on the Royal Commission’s recommendation to create a single national scheme for the regulation for charitable fundraising. 

    We need to highlight which State and Territory governments are making progress in reducing red tape and which are not. 

    We can only really do this by telling your stories about what it takes to register your fundraising activity and comply with varying regulations around Australia. 

    Thank you for finding five minutes to complete the short survey on your experience with the current system of fundraising regulation.
