Charity Subtype: Other

When the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission register an organisation, its charity ‘subtypes’ are also publicly registered.


These reflect the category of that organisation’s charitable purpose, which is what its activities will work towards achieving.


Each subtype has a specific meaning under the law.


The subtype for discussion today is any other purpose beneficial to the general public that may reasonably be regarded as analogous to, or within the spirit of, any of the purposes mentioned in the subtypes we have discussed so far in our series.


💡 This purpose includes other purposes previously recognised by the courts as being charitable and allows for the development of charitable purposes over time.


If applying to register an organisation as a charity, before you select this subtype, consider whether your organisation's purposes fall within one of the other subtypes.


❕ If all of your organisation's purposes fall within other subtypes, you should not select this subtype.


✔️ If you believe that your organisation's purposes are similar to but not fully covered by the other subtypes, it may be suitable to select this one.
