The Fundraising Regulator, the independent regulator of charitable fundraising in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, will soon be contacting eligible organisations to inform them about their fee band for 2022-23.
The regulation of fundraising is mostly funded through an annual voluntary Fundraising Levy (the levy), which begins on 1 September each year.
The cost is shared by the charitable organisations which carry out the most fundraising activity and is an established cost of business for those which spend £100,000 or more each year on their fundraising.
The Fundraising Regulator has advised that the basis for the levy is unchanged and the scale of fees has not increased since July 2016. So that fees are fair and continue to reflect fundraising expenditure, they recalculate the fee band that each organisation fits into based on its recently published accounts.
