Some people prefer to donate via Bank Transfer: bank transfer either as a one off payment or at regular intervals as then this avoids the fee to me that is charged by Patreon or for other personal reasons. It has the benefit of not having to sign up to a new platform. It can be a good idea to contact me and let me know if you are concerned the details you entered aren't correct - to ensure your money reaches me as intended.

For people who just want a quick way to send money without signing up for anything or visiting a banking site, Stripe allows this via these buttons. The amount is set and is a one-off payment using credit card details. If you put in a valid email address then you should get a receipt. You should see AusGov.info on your bank statement details. The Stripe platform processes all financial information for a secure transation.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. In order to avoid breaching people's sense of privacy, unless I am directly contacted about a donation by the donor, I do not thank them unless having a direct conversation about a donation.

Having said this, most people become donors when they read that someone they respect suggests they do. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share my work with your networks. While I am yet to receive a minimum wage for what I do I want people to know that I am grateful for both the financial and moral support I receive.

Select an electorate to display finances for individual charities carrying out AGED CARE ACTIVITIES.

Over 47 thousand charities must report to the Australian Charities & Not-for-profit Commission each year. However the financial information they are required to provide varies radically depending on their size and whether reports as a 'Group Reporter' or self-assesses as a 'Basic Religious Charity'.

Group Reporters

Group reporting is where a number of charities aggregate their finances and report as a single entity. 16% of charity revenue is reported in this manner and this revenue can not be analysed by organisation or location.

Basic Relgious Charities

As the term suggests, the Basic Religious Charity reporting exception only applies to religious charities and allows religious charities to except themselves from providing financial information to the charity regulator and also from the governance standards required by secular charities.

The Basic Religious Charity reporting loophole was not originally intended to be a part of the legislation administered by the ACNC (which was founded by the outgoing Labor government in 2012). Religious leaders, in particular, the Catholic Church, lobbied for the introduction of this status. Despite the incorrect usage of this loophole being a well-identified problem (Submission to the Review of ACNC legislation) and the 5 year review (p13) of the legislation handed down last year recommending its removal, the Treasurer opted to retain the loophole.

Overview

Charities are often thought of as small, under-funded organisations. While this is true for a number, religious charities operate as large networks and organise their finances centrally to a greater or lesser extent. This impacts on the level of transparency government and the public can have over their financial operations. It is worth considering that the charity sector is extraordinarily large due to the diversity of types of organisation that can register for tax concessions as registered charities.

This includes not only universities (which receive billions in HECS annually), but private hospitals, schools, aged care facilities, employment service providers and op shops- all of which have large turnover and receive significants amounts in government funding or, in the example of op shops the use of unpaid labour from income support recipients as 'mutual obligations'.
