In my opinion that fundraisers in Australia and the general public have been duped into what is called a “pfra code” by a company that doesn’t even have the capacity to “regulate” one big charity, such as Australian Red Cross that operates nationally. the PFRA is a rip off, first to fundraisers and an instrument of causing havoc in the charitable sector. In fact, the PFRA is simply APPCO and Cornurcopia that is trading under a different name to give charities that lost legitimacy and public trust through wage scandals, such as Wesley Mission, plan International, Amnesty International, Peter Macculum Cancer Council. The greatest joke this year is that the face-to-face manager’s whose charities need to account for wage scandals of 2016 are sitting on PFRA this year as “Executive Director”, “Regulating themselves” and giving legitimacy to themselves. APPCO is still taking charit money all the way to the bank laughing and has not changed it’s model and isnt going to any time soon.
-Give us a break PFRA.
We need an honest, transparent and REAL regulator.
