dc.description.abstract Australia's nonprofit sector is of greater importance than is generally realised. The nonprofit form is invariably adopted for the organised representation of interests and for the practice of religion. Nonprofit organisations are the major providers of welfare services and significant contributors in the health, education, sport, recreation, entertainment and finance industries. They employ nine percent of all private employees and spend about fifteen billion dollars annually. Over seven billion dollars of their revenue comes from government grants, and about two and-a-half billion from donations. Much of the rest of their income comes from fees and charges. They mobilise a voluntary contribution of about two hours per week from about one third of the adult population. Governments encourage nonprofit organising by providing special forms of incorporation, various taxation concessions and grants. By and large the accompanying regulatory regime is a lax one. en_US
