Changing or ending your organisation

On this page


Our resources look at some of the legal issues that community organisations should think about when things change (or preferably before things change).

Changes may be needed when small, locally-focused community organisations have opportunities to operate interstate - this may require a change in legal structure.

An organisation's fundraising and other activities may grow to a point where they decide to apply for Deductible Gift Recipient status, and need to amend their constitution.

And sometimes organisations find that there is no longer a need for their existence and decide to wind-up or merge with another not-for-profit organisation.
