Volunteers sought for event fundraising code of practice

The Institute of Fundraising is inviting applicants to join the working party that will be responsible for the development of a new Event Fundraising Code.

The Event Fundraising Code will cover event management, the financial procedures, risk, insurance, marketing and delivery, as well as the key legislation and taxation issues relevant to those events.

Andrew Watt, Head of Policy and Deputy Chief Executive, at the Institute of Fundraising, said: “Event fundraisers, consultants, lawyers and smaller charity representatives are all welcome. The Code will be an important step in providing the sector with better ./guidance and reminding them about the relevant legislation – all in one place.”

The Institute is particularly looking for those with:

  • knowledge of event fundraising
  • knowledge of Institute of Fundraising Codes of Practice
  • availability to commit their time, on a voluntary basis, to attend meetings to progress the Code

Expressions of interest to join the Working Party should be submitted by 6 May 2005.

Nomination forms and information for parties interested in the development process for the Institute’s Codes are available online.

The Institute has established 22 Codes of Fundraising Practice, representing the best practice standards set for fundraisers in the UK. Each Code covers a separate fundraising technique and provides not only information on relevant areas of the law but also the best practice that the fundraising sector has set itself to ensure the highest standards.
