Queensland Non profit information

Non-profit organisations operate in many areas of society. They can include:

* church schools
* churches
* environmental protection societies
* public museums and libraries
* scientific societies
* sports clubs
* traditional service clubs
* neighbourhood associations
* community child care centres
* cultural societies
* scholarship funds
* scouts
* surf lifesaving clubs

A non-profit organisation is one which is not operating for the profit or gain of its individual members, whether these gains would have been direct or indirect. This applies both while the organisation is operating and when it winds up.

Any profit made by the organisation goes back into the operation of the organisation to carry out its purposes and is not distributed to any of its members.
