New Fundraising Regulator
There will be a new fundraising regulator, formed as a result of the Etherington review into fundraising.
The principal aims of this regulator will be to set and promote standards of fundraising practise and this regulator will be taking over the role of the Fundraising Standards Board.
The Fundraising Regulator will be imposing a low level registration fee and a levy on schools based on their fundraising expenditure. If your school undertakes fundraising, it is very important that you familiarise yourself with the provisions which will be applicable from 1 September 2016.
The regulator will also introduce a Fundraising Preference Service (‘FPS’) which allow the general public an opportunity to control who they may be contacted by. There is an opportunity to feed back on the proposals by 30 September 2016.
The Institute of Development Professionals in Education (IDPE) have helpfully produced a guidance note to inform and assist schools as what to expect.
