Reader Survey: Should more be done to protect donor rights?

Are donor rights an integral part of ethical fundraising or a pointless constraint on an already stretched sector?

Charity Digital News, in association with Advanced NFP, has launched a survey to find out what our readers think.

Some in the third sector argue that protections are vital for vulnerable donors overwhelmed by letters and calls. This was an issue highlighted by the death of Olive Cooke, who is said to have received hundreds of donation requests per month. Others, including Cooke’s family, don’t feel that charities have crossed any lines.

For another group, government cuts put charitable services in more demand than ever, and the sector has an obligation to ramp up fundraising efforts accordingly.

It’s a timely debate — but where do you stand? Click here to take our anonymous survey now.
