To be eligible to apply for DGR endorsement you must, except in some very limited circumstances, first be registered as a charity with the ACNC.
Please note: Not all charities are eligible for DGR endorsement – i.e. you are not automatically granted DGR endorsement if you are registered as a charity.
To become endorsed as a DGR you must also meet the specific requirements set out for the particular category of DGR that you are seeking. Note there are approximately 50 different categories of DGR.
While each of our LBG constitutions have been prepared with the fundamental and common requirements for DGR endorsement, we strongly recommend that you seek professional advice about the exact requirements for the DGR category that best suits your purposes and activities before lodging a DGR application.
