With the roll-out of consumer driven care, many charities within the sector are entering new markets or receiving additional public funding. However, there is a risk that these additional activities may result in charities straying outside the scope of their charitable purpose. This session examines the key legal and regulatory issues, including:

  • Impact of consumer driven care on charitable purpose
  • New sources of funding - when might they fall outside the scope of charitable purpose?
  • Ensuring your strategic plan aligns with your charitable purpose
  • Activities that place tax concessions at risk
  • What to do when the ACNC has decided you are not acting within your charitable purpose?
  • Losing tax concessions and DGR status
Our presenter

Rebecca Lambert-Smith, Senior Lawyer, Moores, Hawthorn, Vic.

Rebecca holds the contribution to the community made by her For Purpose clients in high regard. For this reason, she takes great pleasure in smoothing the way for them - whether it be helping a new organisation get on its feet, complex structuring advice or resolving internal disputes. It’s also why she regularly serves on not for profits boards, including (at the moment) a tertiary institution and a public benevolent institution.

With Rebecca, you know where you stand. She gets quickly to the heart of the matter and then formulates a strategy. There is no obfuscation; no sitting on the fence. Some say that she is direct. They are probably right. However Rebecca is able to combine that quality with emotional intelligence. The result is that she maps a way forward that leaves clients feeling confident and with relationships strengthened.


This webinar is suitable for lawyers advising not for profits – Australia wide. This webinar is for practitioners with some knowledge in this area and looking to improve their knowledge.

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
