The ACNC: How We Help You
What is the ACNC and what is its role?
Charting a path for good involves understanding the big picture and knowing where to start. When it comes to operating and managing Australian charities, this can be very challenging.
One of the most essential issues is understanding and properly utilising the ACNC. This two-week course is the perfect introduction to Australia’s charity regulator.
Gain a better understanding of the charity sector
As the national regulator, the ACNC (Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission) has specific functions within the charity sector.
On this course, you’ll learn exactly what falls inside and outside the ACNC’s area of regulatory responsibility, and what kind of support it can offer Australian charities.
You’ll see the general benefits to being a registered charity and also what the specific benefits for your organisation are.
Learn how the ACNC can help your registered charity
You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the ACNC’s regulatory approach including how the regulator chooses to provide support and ensures compliance.
Understanding the ACNC’s activities (and the benefits those activities provide) will give you clear insights into how it can help your registered charity, and into how to actually apply for the benefits that are relevant to your situation.
