Australia’s grant-making charities 2016
Australia’s grant-making charities in 2016, March 2018
The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is Australia’s national charity regulator. Registered charities are required to provide the ACNC with an Annual Information Statement comprising up-to-date corporate governance and financial data. The ACNC has commissioned the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney to analyse charity data and provide reports for distribution to the sector and the broader Australian community. This closes the feedback loop for charities required to provide data and provides empirically-based insights into Australia’s charities. ACNC data can also be explored at: http://australiancharities.acnc.gov.au/.
Centre for Social Impact
The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) is a national research and education centre dedicated to catalysing social change for a better world. CSI is built on the foundation of three of Australia’s leading universities: UNSW Sydney, The University of Western Australia and Swinburne University of Technology. Our research develops knowledge to understand current social challenges and opportunities; our postgraduate and undergraduate education develops social impact leaders; and we aim to catalyse change by drawing on these foundations and translating knowledge, creating leaders, developing usable resources and reaching across traditional divides to facilitate collaborations.
Social Policy Research Centre
The Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) at UNSW Sydney was founded in 1980 as Australia’s first national research centre dedicated to shaping awareness of social welfare issues. The Centre makes a positive impact through independent and leading research that explores the key social issues of poverty, inequality, wellbeing and justice.
