Change to Company Limited by Guarantee

Nature Foundation has formally changed to the organisation entity of Nature Foundation Ltd, ABN number: 24 131 531 874 and ACN number: 638 003 577.
 
Nature Foundation was previously known as Nature Foundation SA Incorporated (NFSA), and recently migrated from an incorporated association to a company limited by guarantee under the Corporations Act 2001. The migration took place following a notice issued by the South Australian Corporate Affairs Commission (Commission) pursuant to section 42(1)(b) of the Associations Incorporation Act 1985 (SA) (Notice).
 
The Notice stated that the Commission, was of the opinion, that the undertakings or operations of Nature Foundation SA Inc would be more appropriately carried on by a company limited by guarantee (i.e. Nature Foundation).
 
The Commission published a declaration in the Government Gazette, with the effect that all property, rights, liabilities and undertakings of Nature Foundation SA Inc are transferred to Nature Foundation Ltd, effective as of 20 February 2020.

The manner of the transition means that whilst the structure and the legislation under which it was established has changed, the entity remains one and the same for all legal purposes and all agreements, deeds, grants, titles, memberships and understandings which transfer to the new entity without any requirements for changes.
 
Nature Foundation is still registered on the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC) website www.acnc.gov.au under its new identity and fully retains its DGR status.
