All government and al legal bodies recognise the we are respectable board of directors.
Why would you say that we are not respectable board of directors.
We are a board that do, Not a board that dream and that is what our many sponsors like about our organisation and the idea of this fundraising event.

All good. If you are properly governed, tell the world by putting all the info on your website. Also details of your good works.

Is your charity ATO endorsed?

You dont seem to appear on the ACNC register.

and there are no ABN details on your registration form.

A respectable list of names on a board and even good deeds don't mean that directors and others aren't creaming big money off the top of any charity.

I have done some big events with Make a Wish and went to their Melbourne head office one time a few years back. It wasn't a flashy office like many charities, it was in a lower rent area and it was full of second hand furniture. That's a charity that I really respect.

There is one very well known charity in SA run by a very well known local that I would never donate to. The charity makes huge money and has made some great donations but the money that he personally makes from the charity is disgusting.

Events like the Color Run just recently held in Australia make it very hard for a newer charity in Australia. The events made millions of dollars with only tens of thousands ending up in the hands of charities.

Checkout the story behind Movember. It will make you think twice about donating or participating.
