The Fundraising Institute of Australia (FIA) has released an exposure draft of a revised fundraising code of conduct for the charity sector. The code aims to reflect best practice and addresses some of the public concerns raised against fundraising practices in recent times.
These include how fundraisers approach people in vulnerable circumstances and the due diligence charities carry out when working with fundraising contractors.
The FIA, along with the Governance Institute, are both part of a powerful coalition of bodies calling on all Australian governments to work together to provide charities and other not-for-profits with a nationally-consistent and fit-for purpose regulatory regime for fundraising.
