There was a lot and by that we mean A LOT of paper work involved but with the help of community members we were able to get our paperwork completed and lodged for us applying for a Charitable Collections License.
And now we would just like to inform you all that our application was put to the Charitable Collections Advisory Committee last week for us to be able to be granted a Charity Collections Licence and we are very happy to inform you all that we have now been granted this licence.
Without this licence we would not be able to ask for donations of any kind.
Be it things for the garden, cash donations etc.
And now we can!!!
You can check out our listing here
If you are concerned about another orginisation and want to make sure that they have their licence which is needed to ask for any kind of donation within Western Australia you can also check to see if they are registered here.
I know it has been a while since our last update but we have some exciting news to share with you all!!
We applied to be registered as a charity with ACNC (Australian Charities and Not for Profits).
In all honesty a lot of time and hard work went into being able to gain this status.
And it has all finally paid off.
Yesterday we got the word that we have now got ACNC registration.
Now we just have to await the outcome of the Department of Commerces Charity departments meeting that was held yesterday.
We have applied for a CCL.
Without a valid CCL we won't legally be able to have raffles (yes even if we had a raffle license we still need to have a CCL!!!)
We also won't be able to ask for donations etc
And trust us we will be asking for donations after we get our CCL as we have BIG things planned.
You will have to wait and see what our plans are, but trust us even the less impressionable will be truly impressed by what we have planned.
We hope you stick around and support us.
