Charity law applies to all organisations and individuals who appeal for funds for charitable purposes.

The guidance is about fundraising from the public.


CC20 provides

•  information on charity law as it applies to fundraising,

•  general principles charity trustees should follow when developing a fundraising strategy,

•  where the Code of Fundraising Practice applies, and

•  information on issues that charities may encounter.


The Charity Commission provides a wide range of other guidance on fundraising,

including legal and safe ways to fundraise, rules on Charity trading, working with companies, disaster appeals etc.
