Charity Commission CC20

Following a challenging 12 months for the fundraising sector, The Charity Commission published Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties (CC20) in June 2016. The explicit purpose of this guidance was to support trustees in complying with their legal trustee duties when overseeing fundraising.
About CC20

Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties (CC20) calls for trustees to ensure that fundraising reflects their charity’s values. The Charity Commission sees it as part of its response to some of the high-profile problems identified with fundraising practices over the past year. It sets out six key principles aimed at helping trustees comply with their legal duties on fundraising.

The six principles include: supervising fundraising, not simply delegating; protecting the charity’s reputation and having regard for its values when making decisions about fundraising; and being transparent, including about any commercial relationships. Advice is also included on effective planning, legal compliance and how to follow best practice.

How we can help you

Aleron have been working closely with organisations to consider the practical implications of CC20, and other recent developments in fundraising regulation. We have engaged with trustees,  who are ultimately accountable for the way funds are raised, and senior management, who must manage the day to day business of fundraising. Through our work we have helped charities to revise core business processes and systems, and supported them in taking a robust approach to compliance and good practice that will also equip them to manage future changes to regulations and codes of practice.
