Fundraising generally refers to activities such as soliciting public donations, holding public events with admission fees, holding fundraising events, 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.

See our Fundraising Hub for information about state and territory regulators and other fundraising resources.
