The Law on lotteries There are two important issues for charities and organisations who are fundraising by lottery: The person managing the lottery must be a member or employee of the society/charity who the lottery is for. The person promoting the lottery must have written authorisation from the society/charity to act as the promoter. Lotteries and Amusement Act 1976
Four General Principles a) A legal principle underpinning fundraising is that all funds raised for a particular cause MUST be used for that particular cause. b) Fundraisers OUGHT NOT to denigrate other individuals or organisations. c) Organisations OUGHT NOT to exaggerate facts relating to the potential beneficiary. d) Organisations OUGHT NOT to take advantage of mistakes made by the donor.
Institute of Fundraising The IoF aims to support its members and the wider fundraising community by: Creating a better environment for fundraisers to raise money Increasing understanding of fundraising Enabling fundraisers to be the best they can be
Working with Volunteers Adopt a more flexible approach Ask people whether they want to stay in touch Take a joined up approach Consider shadowing Plan ahead Use online tools and technology Think about risk but be sensible
Where can I find volunteers? Your local volunteer centre Advertise on do-it.org Give a short presentation at your local college/uni/school Hold a stall at a careers event at college/uni/school Ask your local community centre or community association to put a listing in their newsletter Advertise on social media Put posters and flyers in local public places Flyer drop
