Australia’s not-for-profit sector is large and diverse. It has a strong history of helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people across a range of areas. There are approximately 600,000 not-for-profits in Australia, 54,000 of which are charities registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). The ACNC’s annual Australian Charities Report recently found that combined income of Australia’s registered charities is over $134 billion, the equivalent of 8.3 per cent of Australia’s GDP.
