CHARITY FUNDRAISING:

It is against the law for a charity to give money to another charity. For this reason you cannot give any funds raised through membership fees or money given to you by the Union through grants to a charity.

We CAN raise funds on behalf of another charity.

CHARITY FUNDRAISING:

Step 1 is to contact the charity you wish to fundraise for and let them know your plans. They will provide you with the necessary documentation you will require if they approve your event.

You will also then be able to ask permission to advertise using their name and logo.

CHARITY FUNDRAISING:

When it comes to marketing – know the difference between proceeds and profit. You must be specific is 100% of profits going to the charity? If not you must state what percentage will.

If you advertise proceeds will be going to charity, you cannot then deduct your costs. The money legally belongs to the charity in question.
