After successfully leading The Australian Charities Fund (ACF) for four years, our current CEO Ted Kerr will be stepping aside from the day-to-day CEO role at the end of June 2013.
On behalf of the ACF Board and our charity and employer partners, I would like to sincerely thank Ted for his ongoing dedication and contribution to ACF. Through Ted’s tireless and passionate work we have seen significant growth in awareness of, and participation in, workplace giving. I’m delighted that Ted has agreed to continue with ACF in an active role as a non-executive director.
Effective 1 July, Jenny Geddes will take-over the role of CEO of The Australian Charities Fund. Jenny comes to ACF with over 20 years’ experience in the consumer electronics, public relations, new media and IT industries. Much of this career has been with Sony Australia Limited where she held very senior roles in corporate communications, brand marketing and public relations. In parallel with this career, Jenny has been practically and strategically involved in the success of the renowned Sony Foundation.

Workplace giving ready? Let ACF help you develop your strategy. Workplace Giving Strategy Workshop
SYDNEY 13 March 2013
Workplace Giving Month is designed to build awareness of workplace giving, drive staff participation and donation growth, and celebrate the impact each workforce's collective donations have made in the community.
Any organisation with a workplace giving program is encourages to get involved. You can choose to run promotions, celebrations or initiatives on one day, over one week or throughout the entire month.
ACF Employer Partners who ran campaigns during Workplace Giving Month last year increased employee participation rates by an average of 30%.
To make it easy for you, our Workplace Giving Month Resource Kits are available for ACF Employer and Charity Partners under the log-in section of our website. For non ACF partners, see our "top tips" for promotion during Workplace Giving Month below.
To recognise the efforts of all employers to drive workplace giving growth, the employer with the highest percentage increase in staff participation (as a result of a WGM campaign as at 30 June 2013) will receive ACF's Workplace Giving Month 2013 Engagement Award.

The Australian Charities Fund has made a submission in response to the Commonwealth Treasury's discussion paper about Not-For-Profit tax concessions. For the purposes of this submission, we have limited our recommendations to those we believe can generate significant impact in growing workplace giving in Australia at a relatively low cost to government.
Workplace giving is on the move.
