Victoria (Aus) – Fundraising Registration conditions

The Director has a broad right to impose conditions on the conduct of fundraising appeals either at the time of registration or subsequently. It is CAV (Consumer Affairs Vctoria) policy that the Director will register or renew registration of persons proposing to conduct fundraising appeals in Victoria according to the following principles:

• Persons disclosing that more than 50% of appeal proceeds will be distributed to beneficiaries will be registered without conditions attached to registration (subject to the discretion of the Director if there are reasonably grounds to require conditions);

• Persons disclosing that less than 50% of all appeal proceeds will be distributed to beneficiaries will be registered subject to a disclosure condition affecting their fundraising appeals. That condition is:

• that the fundraiser with respect to each and every fundraising appeal it conducts in Victoria (a) prominently identifies in all solicitations, both written and oral, to prospective donors the proportion of total appeal proceeds that will be distributed to beneficiaries during the period of its registration; and (b) clearly labels all products offered for sale with a statement identifying the proportion of total appeal proceeds that will be distributed to beneficiaries during the period of its registration.

• Persons disclosing that less than 35% of all appeal proceeds will be distributed to beneficiaries will be requested to show cause why they should be registered.
