Since 1 March 2018, the Fundraising Regulator, which is the independent regulator of fundraising, opened up its registration scheme to those charities that registered with the Charity Commission Northern Ireland (CCNI). It will enable charities in Northern Ireland to join over 3,000 charities currently registered with the regulator, as fundraising charities on the Public Register.
What are the thresholds?
Charities registered with CCNI with an annual fundraising spend below £100,000 can now register with the Fundraising Regulator to demonstrate support and commitment to high fundraising standards.
Those charities registered with CCNI with an annual fundraising spend above £100,000 will need to register with the regulator, but they will be asked to contribute to the fundraising levy, which will depend upon the amount the charity spends on fundraising. The scale of fees is available on the regulator’s website.
