The Charity Commission has published new guidance for charity trustees about fundraising from the public. The guidance sets out 6 key principles to help trustees comply with their legal duties when overseeing their charity’s fundraising, and also includes a checklist for trustees to evaluate their charity’s performance against the legal requirements and good practice recommendations set out in the guidance.

Director of Policy and Communications, Sarah Atkinson, says of the guidance, “It provides trustees with the tools they need to do more than just meet the basics and will help them succeed in raising much needed funds while protecting their charity’s reputation.”

The guidance notes may be read on the Charity Commission website here.
