Statement from the ACNC:
We have received multiple requests to comment on the Australian Christian Lobby’s decision to support Israel Folau’s fundraising for legal costs. The ACNC cannot comment on the circumstances of individual charities.
Generally, the ACNC can investigate where there are concerns that a registered charity has breached the ACNC Act or our Governance Standards. This may include if a charity is not pursuing its charitable purpose, not operating in a not-for-profit manner, or giving private benefits to its members.
More information on the ACNC Governance Standards is available here.
More information on what the ACNC can investigate and how to raise a concern about a charity is available here.
