Guidance for Fundraisers
The Institute of Fundraising provides legal and best practice guidance on a wide range of fundraising techniques. Fundraising itself is largely unregulated in law, but there are a number or regulatory requirements that impact upon fundraising. By taking some time to understand the regulatory environment and the requirements that you may need to follow, you will be best placed to ensure you meet legal and best practice standards.
Our Information About Fundraising section provides a great overview of legal and best practice issues to be aware of when starting your fundraising activity.
The Code of Fundraising Practice provide detailed guidance on legal requirements for different fundraising techniques. Before starting your fundraising you should read the Code of Fundraising Practice to ensure you adhere to legal and best practice standards.
The devolved nature of UK Government means that different legislation may be applicable, depending upon where in the UK you are fundraising. Our Law and Regulation section will signpost you to the relevant legislation for each nation.
