Charities and/or non-profit entities

A major driver of governance systems is the regulatory and legal environment in which a Charity and/or Non-Profit organisation operates. Through our extensive experience, we understand the challenges and the opportunities your environment presents, particularly with increasing regulatory obligations through the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC).

At Effective Governance we assist you to create a sustainable organisation that balances mission/purpose and business imperatives through value adding governance activities.

Value of Governance

  • Good Governance provides stakeholder confidence for ongoing funding for service delivery of Charities and Not-for-Profits.
  • Compliance with Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission Expectations.
  • The review of the CEO can be a challenging process and discussion, reflecting upon expectations is a healthy and robust process that will improve the relationship of the board and the CEO.
