MEDIA RELEASE – EMBARGOED AND NOT FORUSE PRIOR TO WEDNESDAY 5TH APRIL, 2017Over 100 charities band together demanding Australia’s fundraising regulations are fixed by theFederal Government, highlighting current regulations work actively against a massive sector thatnow employs over 1.1 million Australians and has over 134 billion in annual revenue.Community Council for Australia (CCA) Chair Tim Costello says many charities now ignore thecurrent funding regulations because they are too confusing, too complex and highlyineffective. CCA estimates less that 10,000 out of Australia’s 50,000 charities even comply withcurrent rules. Tim Costello says millions of dollars are being wasted in lost productivity because ofthe almighty mess.Over 100 major charities have joined together to call on the Federal Government to fix Australia’sfundraising regulations – which they are say are “an almighty mess” and are directly leading to tensof millions of dollars in lost productivity being wasted in the charity sector annually.Tim Costello – the Chair of Community Council for Australia – is helping to spearhead the call for thechange. He says Australia’s charity fundraising regulations are completely out of date and workactively against Australia’s massive charity sector.Community Council for Australia (CCA) highlights the charity sector now employs a massive 1.1million Australians with over 134 billion in annual revenue and 11 billion alone in individual giving.Tim Costello says bluntly put, many charities now ignore the current rules because they are simplytoo confusing, too complex and highly ineffective.He estimates that less than 10,000 out of 50,000 charities even comply with the current rules. Hehighlights changes would save the States and Territories running their own compliance branches.Tim Costello says the sector has been asking the Government to fix fundraising in Australia for 20years. He says that it seems that whilst cutting red tape is essential for business, the Governmenthas not prioritised cutting red tape for charity.Signatories demanding fundraising reform include The RSPCA; The Smith Family, World Vision,Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS); CPA Australia; Australian Institute of CompanyDirectors; Philanthropy Australia and Community Council for Australia. Organisations behind the callinclude Law Council of Australia; Mission Australia; Oxfam Australia; SANE Australia; Save theChildren and a massive list of other charities.An open letter will be delivered to Government on Wednesday 5th April, 2017.1

Tim Costello said, “Charities want to do the right thing but the rules work against them. It is morethan time to fix this. A key point is that it can be done easily at no cost. Federal, State and TerritoryGovernments need to provide charities with one nationally consistent modern and fit for purposefundraising regime as part of the current review of Australian consumer law.”David Crosbie – the CEO of Community Council for Australia – said, “Charities across Australia arecompletely frustrated with Governments not acting to remove red tape and duplication that iscosting hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity. Charities have had enough. When itcomes to freeing up charities to do their work, responsible Ministers fall into the arms of ill-informedbureaucratic advisors. They wave more forms in our faces. It’s laughable. Fundraising regulationsare a classic example of feral bureaucracy. They are a dog’s breakfast of regulations costing hours ofstaff time in wasted compliance activity.”Tim Costello said, “There have been numerous independent enquiries all asking for change yet weseem to be told this issue is not important enough. It is just not good enough. Our charities deservebetter.”“The charities of Australia support and enable so many aspects of our lives. They work in education,the arts, health, emergency services, the environment, employment, housing, health and so manyother areas. They are crucial to Australia’s productivity and Australia’s well-being.”“We need action now so that our organisations and the donors who support us can actually operateunder a twenty-first century nationally consistent and fit for purpose regulatory regime. We arecalling on Governments to fix the fundraising mess so we can get on with what we do best – which isbuilding flourishing communities.”Media enquiries to Ross Woodward on 03 9769 6488Signatories of the Joint Statement on Fundraising Reform: Justice Connect Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) Governance Institute of Australia CPA Australia Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) Philanthropy Australia Community Council for Australia (CCA)Supporters of the campaign include: AEG OGDEN AICD NFP Chairs’ Forum Academy of Football Australia Add-Ministry Inc Alola Australia Limited ArtSound FM Artist's for Kids' Culture Altona Bowling Club2
