Charity Fundraising in the 21st Century


Senate-Chamber_001There is a new Senate inquiry into Charity Fundraising in the 21st Century.  Submissions close on 6 August and the committee is to report on or before 18 October 2018.

This caught my eye because one of the terms of reference refers to:

the appropriate donor-focused expectations and requirements that should govern fundraising regulation in the 21st century“.

What do you think about charities incorporating donor expectations into their fundraising practices? On the one hand this seems self-evident, but then sounds like an oxymoron unless we get into distracting arguments about costs of admin.

It will be interesting to see what comes up in this inquiry – what do you think about yet another exploration of how the sector is travelling and the myriad forms of reporting charities face?
