Pushing back: The role of charities in strengthening our democracy

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 25th February 2021 -  If proposed amendments to the powers of the ACNC are passed by the Parliament, there would be major consequences – it’s not going to make our government stronger, writes David Crosbie.

Advocacy and disrupted government

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 11th February 2021 -  Government as we knew it has been disrupted. The challenge for charities is to adapt and engage through new mediums and shine our own lights on issues that matter, such as the ongoing fight to fix fundraising regulation, writes David Crosbie.

Giving back by giving to

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 28th January 2021 -  Companies that over-estimated their future losses during the pandemic are being encouraged to return some of the tax-payer funded JobKeeper payments they received to the government. But what if there was a better way to contribute back to our community in this time of need, a way that would generate many ongoing additional benefits, writes David Crosbie.

The digital divide between charities

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 14th January 2021 -  As charities look to the year ahead, they could do worse than begin this reflection by asking if they might benefit from more effective use of technology in the way they go about their work, writes David Crosbie.

Politics and the power of collaboration

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 10th December 2020 -  As political considerations are becoming a more prominent factor in government decision-making, the focus of the charities sector needs to be more about collective action, writes David Crosbie.

Charities as drivers of employment, productivity, and growth

Opinion

Waiting for reform?

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 12th November 2020 -  It’s been 10 years since the Productivity Commission published its report on the charity sector, yet many of the issues it highlighted then are the same today. This suggests we need to take a different approach to sector reform, and get better at promoting our value, writes David Crosbie.

Charity workers – the heart of future Australia

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 29th October 2020 -  At a time when we know some charity workers are struggling, it’s more important than ever to acknowledge how critical charity workers are to our future, writes David Crosbie.

Engagement and advocacy – ensuring our future

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 15th October 2020 -  If we are to build back better, charities will need to play a much more prominent role in policy making for the communities they serve, writes David Crosbie. 

The new imperative

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 1st October 2020 -  The launch of Imperative21 signals a substantial movement seeking to reframe the purpose of business around benefitting our communities. It’s time for charities to look beyond government and consider where potential alliances might be formed with business, writes David Crosbie.

Now or never – Time to fix fundraising

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 17th September 2020 -  As charities impacted by COVID-19 desperately pivot to online fundraising to replace income lost from their usual face-to-face activities, it is critical that we fix fundraising regulations, writes David Crosbie, who proposes a draft set of regulatory principles.

Investing in charities: economic stimulus spending on steroids

Opinion

David Crosbie, Thursday, 3rd September 2020 -  The Australian Taxation Office has confirmed that 320,000 charity workers are receiving JobKeeper. When it ends, charities will need a higher level of investment if Australia is to achieve the post-pandemic economic recovery we are all hoping for, writes David Crosbie.
