Bravehearts Gets Charity Tick Of Approval

December 20, 2016

Bravehearts has been given the charity tick of approval by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC)

Launched this week, the Registered Charity Tick is a visible symbol of credibility for prospective and current supporters of charitable organisations reflecting the charity’s compliance with statutory financial reporting and governance requirements.

“Bravehearts is a well-respected Australian charity and has been supporting children and their families and working to prevent sexual assault for two decades and we welcome this initiative by the ACNC,” says Bravehearts Founder Hetty Johnston AM.

“High level governance and best practice management has enabled Bravehearts to maintain its position as the leading child protection organisation in the country and it’s a privilege we take seriously.

“At this time of year, many charities are running Christmas appeals and this tick by the ACNC will also give donors confidence knowing they are supporting charities that are trusted and have credibility in the public sphere.”

With the 2016 Charity Reputation Index showing public trust in the sector at a six-year high, the Registered Charity Tick is expected to provide an added layer of security for those wishing to donate.

So far this year, more than 450 charities have been deregistered for failing to meet the ACNC’s standards with another 3239 organisations on notice.
