Hot off the press

The Governance Academy takes a look at the new guidance from the Charity Commission about charities and fundraising.

You will find "Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties" at

The guidance sets out 6 key principles:
  1. Plan effectively
  2. Supervise your fundraisers
  3. Protect the reputation of your charity as well as its money and assets
  4. Follow the laws and regulations
  5. Follow the recognized standards for fundraising
  6. Be open and accountable
The guidance also provides an updated section on the regulation of fundraising and a summary of the legal requirements included in Charities Acts legislation and regulations.

Now the subject matter may not inspire you but if you are the trustee of a charity it is actually important that you get to grips with all this stuff.

So, bite the bullet and read this guidance!
