    Development professionals in the UK may be interested in a recent report
    prepared for the Canadian government by an advisory group studying the
    non-profit sector in Canada. It is especially interesting in that it
    highly commends the npo environment in the UK and the role of the
    Charity Commission. Among other things, it would ban commission-based
    fundraising, the selling of donor lists and set up a regulatory
    structure. I would be interested in any comments about the report.

    The report can be found at this site:

    I am a Canadian student of Arts Management and have heard some members of the Panel on Accountability and Governance in the Voluntary Sector speak about this project. The panel was formed by the not-for-profit sector to proactively respond to the perception that the sector needs to be more accountable and more transparent. In the U.S. there seems to be a similar, and perhaps even more acute sense that charities need to be more accountable to the government and the public. I would be interested to hear any response to this report, and also to hear whether or not the not-for-profit sector in the U.K. faces these perception issues.
