We are the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association. We are the self-regulatory body for face to face fundraising in Australia.
The PFRA has released a statement in response to recent media stories regarding fundraising. The statement can be viewed here.
PFRA member charities are responsible for providing absolutely critical services in communities across Australia and globally.
Without the funds raised through face to face fundraising, many of these services could not be delivered.
Thanks to the more than 300,000 generous Australians who commenced a regular gift to PFRA member charities during 2016.
"The ACNC supports the role of good governance in the charitable sector. We expect registered charities to be well governed, responsibly managed and sustainable in their practices. The ACNC recognises the value of self-regulatory bodies like the PFRA, and their influence in improving sector practices beyond what is necessarily required by legislation. We are pleased to work with partners such as the PFRA to support good practice in fundraising."
Councils wishing to contact the PFRA about a site management agreement or to report issue with fundraising please call 1300 170 570.
All feedback from members of the public should, if it relates to a specific issue, be directed to the charity concerned. A full list of PFRA member charities and their websites can be found here.
