Governance refers to the processes, activities and relationships that make sure your charity is effectively and properly run.

Good governance is when charities have practices and procedures in place that help them to do their work effectively and openly, and when the roles and responsibilities of people in the charity are clearly understood.

Charities registered with the ACNC are bound by the ACNC Governance Standards - a set of core, minimum standards that deal with how charities are run.
