In response to allegations made over the summer by the Daily Mail in relation to the unethical practices employed in fundraising activities, the Government set up the Etherington Review into the regulation of Charity Fundraising. PACAC also launched an inquiry, to examine both the regulation of charity fundraising and the way in which trustees of large charities govern fundraising. Witnesses to our inquiry, including employees and trustees of some of the charities whose outsourced fundraising activities have been criticised, expressed shock at the Daily Mail's discoveries. There was consensus amongst witnesses both that trustees had failed in their duty to extend their governance to fundraising, particularly in the management of sub-contractors, and in support of Etherington's proposals. The Government is right to welcome Etherington's recommendations. This is the last chance for self-regulation. It is essential that the Etherington system is made to work effectively, though it can only work by supporting effective governance by trustees.

And why do charities constantly fail to deal with the zombies stalking their corridors at all levels? How can you deal with these people, and through this how can that significantly enhance your career; give personal satisfaction at work and lead to others regarding you as a superhero. Has your career been blighted by an appallingly behaved manager or co-workers? Indeed, right at the top, the Chair of your Board or your CEO could be a zombie affecting the performance of the whole organisation and letting down your beneficiaries. This book shows you not only how to defeat zombies, by either reforming them or facing up to the task of getting rid of them; but it will also help you deal with vampires and details the steps in the journey you can take in becoming a superhero. Whether you are thinking of joining the staff of a charity, or battling the undead within your current workplace, this book will give you the skills you need to survive and prosper. Written from the perspective of a lifelong fundraiser, charity aficionado and now head of the International Fundraising Consultancy this is an insider’s privileged view of the pitfalls and heroics of life in some of our best loved charities.

Comprehensive and edited by leading names, this book takes a critical and discursive approach to the various forms and contexts of fundraising. Fundraising is a maturing profession, but one that is becoming increasingly controversial.

Many more of the next generation of practitioners must be capable of considered reflection, organizational and inter-organizational strategic thinking and value-based leadership. Exploring new developments taking place in the area of fundraising, the specially commissioned articles, by experts in the field move the thinking in the profession beyond its familiar formulae and assumptions, opening up critical debate about the nature, contribution and limitations of fundraising. This volume is essential reading for anyone who aspires to work at senior levels in fundraising or is currently engaged in studying this challenging area.

In this volume charity commissioners and leading charity policy reformers from across the world reflect on the aims and objectives of charity regulation and what it has achieved. Regulating Charities represents an insider’s review of the last quarter century of charity law policy and an insight for its future development. Charity Commissioners and nonprofit regulatory agency heads chart the nature of charity law reforms that they have implemented, with a ‘warts and all’ analysis. They are joined by influential sector reformers who assess the outcomes of their policy agitation. All reflect on the current state of charities in a fiscally restrained environment, often with conservative governments, and offer their views on productive regulatory paths available for the future. This topical collection brings together major charity regulation actors, and will be of great interest to anyone concerned with contemporary third sector policy-making, public administration and civil society.
