Fundraising agreements between non-profit organisations based in England and Wales and professional fundraisers must also be included: the documents in this Professional Fundraiser Agreements (Charities) file are in compliance with the RGPD (General Data Protection Regulation). They also comply with the provisions of the Charitable Act that govern agreements between a charity and a «professional fundraiser.» In particular, the charitable law requires the professional fundraiser to enter into a written agreement with the charity, which not only establishes the agreement between them, but also covers a number of other specific issues defined by the legislation. If a third-party fundraiser falls within the definition of «professional fundraising,» the agreement must include the details of the invitation they must provide, as well as the fees and expenses paid by the professional fundraiser. Third-party fundraisers that are not covered by the legal definition of a professional fundraiser must indicate the actual amount and how the payment is calculated in each proposal or agreement, and fully specify all fees, expenses and other related costs, the calculation of their fees and the timing of payments. You need to understand how your fundraising activities can affect the tax and VAT your organization must pay (if that`s the case) and make sure you pay the correct amount. If the agreement allows for varying payment levels, it is clear that this must be justified in the agreements by reference to the particular circumstances in which different levels of payment may apply. If this is the case, the contract must contain conditions that allow you and the third-party supplier to terminate the contract before their payment changes. A «professional fundraiser» is defined by charitable law as any person or organization that operates a «fundraising activity,» that is, «a business that is managed for profit and that engages, in whole or in part, in the acquisition or acquisition of money or other property for charitable, charitable or philanthropic purposes.» In Scotland, the standards apply to tender declarations for professional fundraisers who solicit donations, to commercial participants who use them, and to benevolent fundraisers (excluding volunteers) who raise benevolent funds. Please note that in Northern Ireland there is no legislation on professional fundraisers or business participants. (However, non-profit organisations collecting donations in Northern Ireland may decide to comply with the legal requirements of England and Wales and Scotland. You need to make sure that the copyright on all materials and databases related to the fundraising activity is clear before performing the activity.
They must agree on all procedures with professional fundraising prior to fundraising, including donor data processing procedures and the production and use of fundraising materials.
