Charity and/or Non-Profit Entity

Charity and/or Non-Profit Entity

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 reporting processes to government related to government contracts (including the Royal Commission outcomes) and the commencement of the Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC).

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.

Client Reference:

"As Chairman of a complex national NFP, I was very impressed with the professional approach undertaken by the team from SSAMM.
The scope of the review was relevant and detailed and enabled quality reports to be produced which summarised succinctly and clearly the salient points and a roadmap going forward. Senior consultants were always available to assist and the presentation to the board was excellent, well done to all."
