Ancillary funds are set up for the purpose of providing money, property or benefits to DGRs (‘Deductible Gift Recipients’). Ancillary funds are special funds that provide a link between people who want to give (‘donors’) and organisations that can receive tax deductible donations. Note that there are two types of ancillary funds – private and public.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
