COVID-19

Standard Content

As the situation and official guidance for Coronavirus (COVID-19) develops, we want to make sure that our members, and everyone in the fundraising community, have the right information to help guide the actions you take and the plans you put in place. 

The most important thing is people’s health and well-being. We want to ensure that you are prepared and informed so that you can keep your supporters, staff, and volunteers safe.

What do I need to think about in relation to fundraising?

We appreciate that it is a difficult time for many of our members, who are having to think through contingency plans, keep up with latest guidance, and also work with partners and volunteers. You might be asked to revise business plans, work with finance teams on cashflow, and looking to see how you can best mitigate any future problems.

As much as possible, try to avoid rushed or hasty decisions and adopt a full-team approach – it’s good practice to document decision-making and make sure that Trustees are involved where appropriate. In all cases, it’s worth making sure you are familiar with the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice so that any decisions are in line with the regulatory standards.
