Those donors pledged £240 million to the sector over the next five years”.He added: “charity trustees would be failing in their duty to their beneficiaries if they neglected to secure long-term, sustainable income streams such as these”.The Institute of Fundraising reported that it is actively engaged with the Home Office to develop a strong regulatory framework for fundraising within the Charities Bill.www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising Law / policylast_img
