As the Fundraising Regulator opens its doors to charity suppliers, Rapidata is one of the first to sign up
As a further step in our drive to provide first-in-class services and best practice for our clients, we are pleased to announce that we are now registered with the Fundraising Regulator as a third-party supplier to the not-for-profit sector.
The voluntary registration scheme, now open to suppliers, encourages third party organisations involved in charitable fundraising to sign up in demonstrating a commitment to high fundraising standards and to the Fundraising Regulator’s Fundraising Promise.
Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Regulator said: “The Charities Act 2016 requires fundraising agreements between charities and third party fundraisers to specify what voluntary fundraising standard the agency undertakes to be bound by.
“Voluntary registration with the Fundraising Regulator and use of our badge are a key way of demonstrating that requirement. We urge third party fundraisers to lead from the front and show their support for high fundraising standards.”
Scott Gray, CEO, explains why Rapidata leads the way: “We’ve always been proud be at the forefront of the industry’s regulation and guidance. Being an “early-adopter” of this latest initiative is an important step in reaffirming Rapidata’s dedication to the charity sector, as an organisation that understands it’s charity clients and the challenges they face.
“Being active within the Fundraising Regulatory environment enables us to play an informed and leading role in the debate around fundraising recruitment, donor communication and online fundraising.”
