25/06/2015 The Board of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) has moved to ensure that the voice of the public and donors sit alongside those of fundraisers and the charity sector by revising the membership of its Standards Committee.
24/06/2015 The Institute of Fundraising has today decided to introduce a new rule into its Code of Fundraising Practice which makes it clear that door to door fundraisers must not knock on doors with a ‘no cold calling’ sticker.
16/06/2015 “Whilst the majority of charities are focussed on meeting the needs of their beneficiaries in extraordinarily difficult times; facing more demands on their services; a new, unexpected political environment; and with less public sector funding predicted for years to come, it was a surprise that Sir Stuart chose to focus on the structure of the self-regulation of fundraising for his keynote address last night. It is true that fundraising practice is under the spotlight, but we are already taking quick action to address public concerns. I do not share his belief that the structures are flawed as he seems to suggest, or that changing those structures would in itself address public concerns.”
