Anecdotal evidence suggests that more and more not-for-profits are coming under pressure to merge. We asked our members what their experience had been.

Funding insecurity appears to be a growing issue in the Australian not-for-profit sector. We wanted to know how many groups were affected. We asked:

Are you worried about funding losses as a result of Federal Government budget cuts?

And has your funding already been reduced as a result of Federal Government budget cuts?



October-November 2013:
The new Abbott Government has signaled its intention to dismantle the newly formed Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), in line with its policy position outlined before the September election.

November-December-January 2012-13:
What names do you use to describe your governance group and the sector your organisation operates within?



August-September-October 2012:

In his speech at the 2012 Communities in Control Conference, Dr James Whelan told us that ready or not, the UK's "Big Society" may well be heading Australia's way. What do you think about "Big Society"?



March 2012:
A not-for-profit leader in the UK is calling for more not-for-profit representation on corporate boards. What do you think of that proposal?

Do you use social media? If so, which ones do you use?
