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 https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/527790/CC20.pdf
The guidance sets out 6 key principles:
- Plan effectively
- Supervise your fundraisers
- Protect the reputation of your charity as well as its money and assets
- Follow the laws and regulations
- Follow the recognized standards for fundraising
- Be open and accountable
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!
