Two more RSL charities caught misusing funds as ACNC scrutiny continues

The Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) has taken compliance action against two RSL charities to address significant governance failures.

ACNC Assistant Commissioner, David Locke, announced that the national charity regulator has entered enforceable undertakings that would monitor RSL NSW and RSL LifeCare for three years. This follows separate investigations into the charities’ activities.

“Over the last nine months we have made public statements regarding compliance against registered charities under the RSL umbrella.”

“Today’s announcement of enforceable undertakings with both RSL NSW and RSL LifeCare follows lengthy, in-depth investigations into the activities and operations of the two charities,” Locke said.
