5 December 2016 – Australia’s charity regulator, the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC), has just released its new Charity Tick. This high profile tick of approval is an endorsement by the charity regulator of an organisation’s governance and trustworthiness. Opportunity International Australia has been granted the Charity Tick, demonstrating its deep commitment to strong governance, accountability, transparency and integrity.
Opportunity Chief Executive Officer, Robert Dunn said: “Donors trust charities with rigorous governance, skilled management, and a high level of transparency about the way they use resources.
“As leaders of charities, we are agents of trust. We have a trust contract with our supporters. This trust contract is precious and needs constant nurturing by providing clarity on what’s happening with a supporter’s donation.
“The ACNC Charity Tick confirms who is doing things the right way and who is not. It gives donors confidence about the integrity of the charity they support and the responsible stewardship of their donations.
“But this is just a starting point, one more element that contributes to the trust contract with our supporters,” he added.
