Australian Charities’ Needs Outlined in Recent Report
According to a recent HLB Mann Juddand Good360 Australiareport titled Goods for the Greater Good, even large Australian charities are struggling to procure the goods they need to continue their operations.
The report, which took survey data collected from a large pool of Australian nonprofits, provides insights to understand the goods that charities need, but cannot afford to purchase. The key findings highlighted the following:
- The most prominent charitable purpose is advancing social and public welfare at 53% followed by advancing health (44%) and education (33%)
- The least prominent charitable purpose is natural environment (4%) and preventing or relieving the suffering of animals (5%)
- Charities and nonprofits of all sizes and causes found office supplies one of the most difficult to afford (23%)
- Household goods such as linen (21%), kitchenware (26%) and furniture (28%) remain unaffordable and the highest demand category
Charities are struggling to meet the needs of the families in their communities particularly for men’s clothing (20%), women’s personal care items (14%) and children’s school supplies (17%).
The demographic of charities surveyed is indicative of the charities in Australia, with the size and spread centralised on the east coast. The majority of charities that responded are categorised as large organisation with over $1 million revenue.
