We have talked before about the Code of Fundraising Practice, and how much it can help you as fundraisers. Originally overseen by the CIoF, it now falls under the remit of the Fundraising Regulator.
It sets out the standards that apply to fundraising carried out by all charities and third party fundraisers in the UK and, much more than that, offers practical guidance and best practice which is very helpful if you are considering a new fundraising stream, or want to check that you are doing the best for your donors.
But a thought occurred to us recently, prompted by a conversation with a new client. How do you use the Code? Do you have a champion, who you go to for advice on the Code? How do you make sure that you are aware of changes to the Code?
If you would like some ideas on these matters, why not book a free 20-minute insight call at https://zorva.info/free-insight-call/, so we can help?
And of course, you can access the Code at https://www.fundraisingregulator.org.uk/code
