Fundraising is a key source of income for many charities and for some it is their only source of income.
You and the other trustees must comply with the law relating to fundraising, and apply good practice. The good practice codes have been developed by the Institute of Fundraising and enforced by the Fundraising Standards Board.
Best practice codes include fundraising methods, the cost involved, financial risk and how to safeguard and use funds raised.
You should also consider how your fundraising methods may impact reputation and public opinion. For more detailed information regarding fundraising, including general advice, legal responsibilities and information regarding tax implications, please read our guidance Charities and Fundraising:
