About the ACNC Register
The ACNC Register contains information about the more than 59 000 charities registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
The charities listed on the Register have met the ACNC’s legal meaning of being a charity and other requirements under our Act, and have ongoing obligations to the ACNC, including keeping their information on the Register up-to-date. Other not-for-profits will not appear on the Register. Find out more about information on the ACNC Register and information that may be withheld from the Register.
Using the Register
If you are responsible for a charity, you can check its details on the Register, and update them using the Charity Portal. You can also use the Register if you are looking for information about a charity, for example, if you want to donate or volunteer.
You can do a quick search using a charity name or ABN, or a more advanced search to find charities based on, for example, where they are located or operate, who they help, what charitable purpose (‘charity subtype’) they have (such as advancing education), or the names and roles of the responsible people for a charity, such as its board or committee members or trustees.
