It’s time to revive the Fundraising Promise, a little-known part of fundraising’s self-regulatory system, says Joe Saxton of nfpSynergy
Breast Cancer Now, which was formed by the merger of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign, has launched today with a new ad campaign and the ambition to “stop breast cancer deaths by 2050”.
Fundraisers are “overfishing the waters” and five key changes are needed for self-regulation to maintain public trust and confidence, the chief executive of NCVO has said.
The Institute of Fundraising’s new rule ensuring that fundraisers no longer ignore ‘No Cold Calling’ signs could cost the sector up to £4.3m in donations each year, according to research from the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association.
Charities already register with the Charity Commission; the FRSB costs money that many small charities, doing God's and often the government's work, can ill afford; Olive Cooke did not kill herself over charity solicitations.
Trustees must do more to give the public confidence in charities, and must make sure charitable donations do not fund "very large" salaries, the minister for civil society said last week.
Fundraising think tank Rogare has today called upon the minister for civil society to create a fourth, independent fundraising body based on the Committee of Advertising Practice, to “devise and own” the Code of Fundraising Practice.
More than two thirds of charities oppose charging the sector for regulation, but three quarters of the public support it, according to a report published today by the Charity Commission.
The Office for Civil Society has announced the launch of its £20m Local Sustainability Fund, which will give grants of between £20,000 and £100,000 to around 250 small and medium-sized organisations.
