Assignment 2–Case Study Report (group work)
The Charities & Not-for-Profit Organisations industry in Australia can be seen as the glue that holds Australian communities together.

The size of the industry is truly large, with revenue expected to be in the order of $101.54 billion in 2010-11, an increase of 6.4% over the previous year.
