Small charities play a vital role in our society.

Nearly two-thirds of Australia's 60,000 registered charities are small, with annual revenue of $250,000 or less. Overall, more than a third of charities are what the ACNC classes as extra small, with annual revenue of $50,000 or less.

Many of these organisations do not have the resources of their larger counterparts. And many of them rely heavily on the contributions, goodwill and knowledge of volunteers.

To assist, the ACNC has developed the Small Charities Library - a collection of factsheets, guides and templates.

These new resources aim to provide Australia's smaller charities with information, advice and tools they can use to help them manage their organisation, run effective meetings and ensure they understand and meet their obligations to the ACNC and other regulators.

We will continue to add new resources to the library in the coming weeks and months to ensure it remains relevant to the thousands of small charities registered and operating in Australia.

Thank you for your contribution to the community.

The Hon. Dr Gary Johns - Commissioner, Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission
