Fundraising Guidelines
Any charity which fundraises from the public needs to ensure that everyone in the organisation is aware of and adhering to the Charities Regulator's recently published Guidelines on Fundraising from the Public.
The Guidelines are based on the same framework and principles as the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising, which was a voluntary code used by the sector for many years. 
This practical half-day workshop from The Wheel will help you to ensure that your nonprofit is complying in full with these new guidelines.
The new guidelines are set out in 10 distinct sections which will be covered in this session:
  1. Background and Introduction
  2. Who should read these Guidelines?
  3. Principles
  4. Donors and Donations
  5. Responsibilities of Charity Trustees
  6. Responsibilities of Management
  7. Responsibilities of Fundraisers
  8. Data Protection
  9. Financial Transparency & Accountability
  10. 10 Monitoring.
The session will be enlivened with discussion on the ethics of fundraising, the pitfalls and dilemmas and will incorporate practical advice and discussion to guide your organisation towards adhering to the best practice in fundraising.
You will also leave knowing where the appropriate further resources are available to help you with your compliance.

What Previous Attendees of Hugh's Income Diversification Workshop Have Said:

"I really enjoyed the introduction to the tools for seeing what fundraising avenues work for your organisation, such as the matrix map.  Also The Wheel's case study was really informative. Whilst I had lots of ideas going into the session, I now have a formula for focusing these ideas into a clearly defined strategy that I'll be able to use and present to my board etc.  Also being able to share ideas and get feedback from others was useful." - L. Bull, Irish Wildlife Trust

"I gained a new perspective on how to look at the issue of funding. I am ready now to start from the beginning, assess our position and follow the steps one at a time. The area of funding can seem overwhelming but when broken down it made the whole thing seem much more manageable." - M. Shelly O'Neill, Dignity4Patients

"I found the content of the workshop very useful on the strategy and what could be termed "governance" around fundraising. I find that quite daunting, but the presentation was well broken down into do-able tasks." - L. Alford, 3Ts

Who Should Attend: 

Managers, fundraisers, business developers, board members and anyone with an interest in seeking to diversify income of a non-profit organisation.
