Accountability and transparency is very important to CEF. When you choose to donate your hard earned money to CEF, we want you to know how it will be used, and assure you it will be used in the best way possible to achieve maximum impact and positive outcomes for rural and regional students and communities.
CEF national office holds DGR1 tax deductability status. We are registered members of the Fundraising Institute of Australia (FIA) and undertake the required annual financial audit, conducted by Boyce Chartered Accountants.
We are a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), as are the majority of our CEF local foundations.
Importantly, we have more than 450 volunteers across the country that assist in our work, and our Board members all participate on a voluntary basis, providing their knowledge, expertise and connections at no cost.
