Bush Heritage - a top 10 finalist in the 2013 PwC Transparency Awards

on 14 Apr 2014 

Bush Heritage has been named as a top 10 finalist in the 2013 PwC Transparency Awards, in the category 'revenue $5m - $30m'.  The awards assess and recognise charities with the "most rigorous and transparent reporting on financials, governance and strategy"  and are run by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), in collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and the Centre for Social Impact.  Richard, Rob (Pratt) and I attended the awards ceremony last Thursday 10th April.

The awards had a total of 53 charities enter this year, and was presided over by an independent jury that included Paula Benson (GM Corporate Responsibility at National Australia Bank), David Locke (Assistant Commissioner at the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission), and David Crosbie (CEO of the Community Council for Australia). 

PwC's Corporate Responsibility Partner, Mark Reading, opened the evening by saying:  "with Australians giving around $2.2 billion a year to registered charities, it's essential that not-for-profit organisations provide clear information to the public about where that money goes and the outcomes they're achieving. The finalists in the PwC Transparency Awards absolutely meet that obligation and set an example across the sector." 

So well done everyone - we should feel very proud to be, once again, named a finalist in these awards!
