An annual report is a publication which can detail a range of important information about a charity and its work over a 12 month period. It may include:
- The charity's mission and vision
- Overviews of a charity's activities and achievements during the previous 12 months, as well as future activities it has planned
- Reports from key staff and board members, and information about the charity’s finances and governance.
Annual reports can contain information that help charities complete the programs section of their Annual Information Statement. It is a good idea to have your annual report at hand when completing this part of your charity's Annual Information Statement.
Charities also have the option to showcase their annual report by uploading it through the Charity Portal and displaying it as part of their listing on the ACNC Charity Register.
