Daniel’s Comment:

 

Poor choice of picture here because this is not about charities. The Australian article refers to a recent paper on US Foundations’ giving to Australia. It makes the point that Australian foundations should be more transparent. US Foundations provide complete disclosure to the IRS and the public on investments, distributions, income received, and salaries paid to board members. Why do some Australian foundations resist this transparency?
