Australia’s Most Reputable Charities

Australia’s Most Reputable Charities

The Australian Charity Reputation Index (RepTrak®) surveys Australians to measure the overall reputation of the country’s 40 largest charities and ranks them using a scoring system that includes measures of trust, admiration, respect and overall esteem. As with this survey, My Charity Change has made sure that the criteria and measurement systems implemented are just as strict.

RI Managing Director Oliver Freedman said “There is no doubt that Australia’s charitable sector was facing challenges to its overall reputation a few years ago. However, most organisations have worked to rebuild as stronger and more reputable. In particular, many charities are now seen as particularly Innovative, with good Leadership, Governance and Cost Management; attributes usually associated with the corporate world. Teamed with a better ability to communicate the community benefits of its work, it’s no surprise that the Charity sector of Australia is the most trusted in the country.”

With this in mind, My Charity Change has developed relationships with some of the most reputable charities in Australia, adding security and trust to the application. We have outlined the survey results below;
