The report also showed 76 charities were investigat­ed for non-compliance issues.

The watchdog received more than 2000 complaints lodged by the public in the 2020-21 financial year.

"The most common concerns were about perceived mismanagem­ent of funds or individual­s obtaining private benefits from charities," the report said.
