Ever wondered how the ATO consults on its work with nonprofit organisations? There is a Stewardship Group - one of eight that the ATO has established - which the ATO consults with on matters around tax.

" The group fosters strategic discussions about the major issues impacting not-for-profit organisations and their representatives with key stakeholders from the not-for-profit community.

"The NFPSG is an opportunity for not-for-profit representatives to engage with [the ATO] senior leaders and help improve the not-for-profit client experience in the tax and super systems. The group is not a decision-making committee and its deliberations are not binding."

You can see the membership of the group, and the Minutes of its meetings going back to November 2013 at this site: https://www.ato.gov.au/general/consultation/consultation-groups/stewardship-groups/not-for-profit-stewardship-group/
