IoF responds to media reports relating to investigations by the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Peter Lewis, chief executive of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF), said:

"Charities are only able to make a massive difference in the world because of the generosity of their supporters. No charity wants to damage that relationship. 

“Nothing should detract from the huge amount of change in the charity sector over the last year, improving fundraising practices that build on the many ways donors want to support the good causes they care about. We are calling on the ICO and charities to work together, and for there to be greater clarity and guidance on what’s expected from the sector so that we can make sure standards continue to improve."
