Institute resources

There are a number of considerations when you are looking to take on a fundraiser. While fundraising payments must not be excessive, the Code does not specify the salary ranges that might be expected. Fundraising salaries can vary greatly and may be related to the resources available, the size of the organisation or location for example. 

When recruiting a fundraiser, organisations need to be aware that there may be the need for the fundraiser to make a solicitation statement. This is a statement which tells members of the public how much the fundraiser is receiving so they know how much money will reach the fundraising organisation.
