The Fundraising Regulator has published new guidance to help the public in setting up their own fundraising appeals and raising money for charity.
The new guidance has been released in response to the public’s fundraising efforts during the current pandemic and is designed to support people in making sure that their fundraising appeals are legal, ethical and have the best chance of success.
It sets out ten steps to help those who would like to raise money by setting up an appeal online, including making sure there is a need for the appeal, that it has a clear purpose, and that they are transparent with their appeals and where the money raised will go. The steps also include using a trusted payment system to receive money, and ensuring they are aware of the legal implications of fundraising this way.
