Guidance on charity officers' fundraising statements

Guidance Notes - Public Charitable Collections: Charity Officers Acting As Fundraisers

CO.CHA.25
These Guidance Notes - Public Charitable Collections: Charity Officers Acting As Fundraisers provides helpful guidance about the legal requirements where a charity engages any of its own employees, trustees or other officers of the charity to carry out any public charitable fundraising activities. Charity law requires such fundraising collectors to make certain solicitation statements.

The note provides an outline of the relevant legal requirements and some examples of wording for statements which would comply with those requirements.

This note is also intended to be referred to by the individual collectors concerned since they will be personally liable for failure to make these solicitation statements. Such a failure would be a criminal offence by the collector.
