• Not-for-profit Stewardship Group

    The Not-for-profit Stewardship Group was established in November 2013 to consider matters of strategic importance to not-for-profit clients. 

    The group includes members that represent a broad spectrum of not-for-profit clients, expanding our previous charity-only focus.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins the consultation framework arrangements.

    See the Not-for-profit Stewardship overview page for details about the key focus areas for the group, membership criteria, length of appointments and what we expect of members.
