Mini charity review of Entheos Incorporated (Entheos), an Associate member of Missions Interlink.

Are they responsive to feedback?

  • When sent a draft of this review, they…did not respond.

Is Entheos registered?

  • Yes, as a NSW incorporated association (INC9875826).
  • But not as a charity.
    • This means that they are not entitled to any charity tax concessions.
  • Not registered for GST, so this should mean that its gross income is below $150K.

What does Entheos do?

  • The only information I can find online is the following description in a whichchristian.org.au publication:
    • ‘Entheos is a contemporary Australian mission agency. We welcome Christians from various backgrounds and nationalities who are responding to the Great Commission (Mt 28:19, 20) Our goal is to reach out for Christ in the ‘10/40 Window’ (Asia and the Arab world) We offer sort and long term opportunities and regularly take mission exposure teams to this region.’

Do they share the Gospel?

  • Depends on what the ‘mission exposure teams’ do.

What impact are they having?

  • No information found.

What do they spend outside the costs directly incurred in delivering the above impact, that is, on administration?

  • No financial information is published, so it is not possible to make this calculation.

Can you get a tax deduction?

  • No

Is their online giving secure?

  • NA. (The website that whichchristian.com.au gives for Entheos, and which Mission Interlink links to, is unavailable.)

What choices do you have in how your donation is used?

  • NA

Is their reporting up-to-date?

Does their reporting comply with the regulator’s requirements?

What financial situation was shown in that Report?

  • NA

What did the auditor say about the last financial statements?

  • An audit report may or may not have been lodged with Fair Trading. Check with them.

If a charity, is their page on the ACNC Register complete?

  • NA

Who are the people controlling the organisation?

  • Other than via information lodged with Fair Trading, not disclosed publicly.

To whom is Entheos accountable?

  • To Missions Interlink[1] via its an Associate membership.
    • You might ask them whether it is acceptable for a member not to be a charity.

 

 

  1. For one opinion on the strength of that accountability, see the section Activities in this review.
