The Victorian community sector is large and complex. It comprises many thousands of organisations providing a wide range of services and receives billions of dollars of income from governments, philanthropists and through service fees and donations. The sector is a large and growing employer and it also enlists many volunteers in various roles including governance, service delivery, administration and fundraising.
This report quantifies the size and scale of the Victorian community sector and its contribution to Victoria’s economy and society. It is based on charities reporting data from the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission’s (ACNC) 2015 Annual Information Statement.
