Brighter future fund

The Brighter Future Fund has applied for deductible gift recipient status will report in accordance with all legal obligations with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. The fund Brighter Future Fund is operated by a management committee. The management committee operates separately to the Bright New World executive. In addition to legal reporting obligations, the fund applies the following internal policy to guide disclosure of income:


Individuals

Whether $5 or $500,000, individuals can donate as much as they want. We respect their privacy, first and foremost. Public declarations of support are a matter for the individual. To become a monthly supporter on one of our plans, please visit our Supporter page. For larger sums, please contact the Executive Director (details at bottom of page).


Corporate membership:

This is forbidden by the constitution and will stay that way. We are an NGO, not a business lobby. Only natural persons or other registered charity/not-for-profit can become members. The membership list is available to members on request.


Philanthropic funds

Can donate any amount without disclosure, notwithstanding any future changes in legal reporting obligations.


Corporate donations

Corporate entities can offer any sum of money and should be aware of this internal policy:

o   Annual donations up to a threshold of AU$25,000 per financial year will be accepted and we will respect the company’s right to privacy if desired.

o   Annual donations above the threshold will be considered by the fund management committee on a case-by-case basis. If the fund management committee decides to accept the donation, this will be disclosed on our web-site within 30 days of receipt of funds.
