Curtin's misuse of the word charities is intellectually lazy and deceptive. The primary role of a charity is to provide support to a disadvantaged group. The primary role of hospitals and universities is to serve the entire community. The primary goal of professional bodies is to serve professionals. They are not for profits, but not charities. By their definition, Curtin should have included Governments in their study. They are not for profit. Then they could have claimed, "Charities earning $1 trillion".
