Deloitte report shows our Not-for-profit Law service boosts the economy
19 Dec 2018
A recent report by Deloitte Access Economics measures the impacts and contributions of Not-for-profit Law, a service at Justice Connect. We shared some highlights from the report at Not-for-profit Law’s 10th birthday.
Analysis revealed the economic contribution of Not-for-profit Law in 2017/18 was an estimated $22.4 million (high case). This comprised of:
- $1.8 million in direct economic contribution
- $3.2 million in value of services including in-house legal advice and information, pro bono referrals, training and online resources
- $17.4 million in wider economic and social benefits delivered to the community as a result of efficiency gains to the not-for-profit sector through accessing Not-for-profit Law’s services.
The report estimates that not-for-profit organisations will be able to deliver approximately 18,000 additional client services over the next three years as a result of the services delivered by Not-for-profit Law.
Our team in New South Wales also demonstrated an incredible impact for the state. For the $300,000 contributed by the NSW government, we returned $7.2 million in economic benefits to the state.
