Fundraising is a key source of income for many charities; for some, it is their sole source of income.
Although fundraising activities are largely self-regulated by the sector, the Commission will produce guidance to help charities and their trustees fundraise effectively, efficiently and legally, protecting public trust and confidence in charities’ work.
