Anglicare Australia believes that philanthropy provides an important source of additional funding for community service organisations. However, any reforms to encourage philanthropic giving or changes to the tax treatment of donations should be designed to complement stable funding for essential services, not replace it. We also encourage the Government to:
- simplify and extend the availability of Deductible Gift Recipient status to all charities registered with the ACNC
- improve access to concessions for charities, including Fringe Benefits Tax Exemptions.
