Fundraising Regulator: Registration For Third-Parties

We have now formally launched registration for commercial fundraising businesses, Commercial Participators and Community Interest Companies (CICs), as part of our wider commitment to ensuring high standards across the fundraising community.

The voluntary registration scheme particularly encourages the following third party organisations involved in charitable fundraising to sign up to good fundraising practice:

  • Agencies offering telemarketing or face to face fundraising services;
  • Direct marketing agencies
  • Online donation sites and fundraising platforms
  • Payroll giving services
  • Commercial clothing collectors
  • Companies exclusively offering fundraising products e.g. charity Christmas cards, affinity sites for purchases

Third party organisations that apply for registration will be invoiced according to their annual turnover, using the same bandings that are applied for the fundraising levy.

Once registered, these organisations will also be able to use the ‘Registered With’ logo on all fundraising materials to demonstrate commitment to high fundraising standards, and to the Fundraising Regulator’s Fundraising Promise.

Third-party organisations can apply for registration using the online form found here. Access details for the Registration Pack will be sent out within 7 working days of payment being processed. Organisations will also appear on the Public Register once registered.
