Fundraising generally refers to activities such as soliciting public donations (either in person or online), holding events to raise money, raffles and other games, corporate partnerships, and crowdfunding.

The ACNC does not regulate fundraising – it is regulated at a state and territory level. Because of this, the specific definition of fundraising can vary between states and territories.

A charity’s Responsible People are, collectively, responsible for the way their charity conducts its fundraising. The ACNC sees the oversight of fundraising activities as a vital aspect of good charity governance.

While the ACNC does not require that charities provide us with their fundraising licence number, we may collect this information as part of our ongoing efforts to reduce red tape across the charity sector. Further information is available via each state or territory fundraising page.
