‘Over $430 million was donated to political parties last financial year and, for good or for bad, not one of these dollars came from the social purpose sector. Given that most donors expect something in return for their donation, this means it will be increasingly challenging for the social purpose sector to get cut through on their advocacy and engagement issues in the years ahead’.  Read more of Neil Pharaoh’s post on the Pro Bono website here. Today’s Pro Bono news cartoon.

‘Political advocacy is an essential task for charities and is something that must be protected’, Greenpeace’s response to comments by Senator James Mcgrath that the charity should be stripped of its tax deductible donations status. Assistant Minister for Charities Zed Seselja said “I would expect all organisations who are subsidised by the taxpayer to act in line with their obligations and in line with the expectations of the public,” – read the post on the Pro Bono website here.

Today’s NFP Kneebone cartoon for Pro Bono, the not-for-profits on-line hub news page.

This cartoon for today’s Pro Bono website update may well be out of date by this afternoon as more Australian politicians feel uneasy about the cosy deal to fund the major parties a dollar for every vote they get …

Pro Bono is the on-line hub for Not-For-Profit organisations; an ongoing issue has been the slow pace of the Statutory Definition of Charity Bill, which ‘would help support charities by providing a succinct and clear definition of charity which is easier for charities and the community to understand’.
