Part 2 of the Charities Act 1992 requires all professional fundraisers, including online fundraising platforms, to inform potential donors of their fees and charges. The Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice was strengthened in June 2018 and accompanied by guidance to make clear what is expected of online fundraising platforms in terms of their transparency. These transparency requirements enable potential donors to make informed choices about their giving.
