Public Fundraising Charities in Queensland
A financial study is presented of charities registered under the Queensland Collections Act. These charities are required to register under that Act as they seek donations from the public. The study collected financial information from the audited annual financial statements lodged in 1989 and 1992. The charities were classified into industry classes according to Australian Standard Industry Classification. Data is presented on charity's numerical growth, growth of assets and receipts, lodging of first returns under the Act and defaults in lodging returns.
A series of exploratory case studies of greater financial detail are presented to establish possible reasons for the aggregated trends established in the first part of the study. The study concludes by raising three issues, the methodological implications posed by the research, substantive issues about the behaviour of nonprofit organisations and issues for the focus of future research.
