IoF and the Fundraising Regulator publish GDPR 'Spotlight Series'


The Institute of Fundraising and the Fundraising Regulator have published joint guidance on GDPR which has been reviewed and co-badged by the Information Commissioner’s Office. The Fundraising Regulator has office space at CAN Mezzanine, Old Street.

The documents are broken down into six digestible chapters, based on the questions that charities have asked and provides clear and practical answers. It gives an overview of GDPR for charities and fundraisers, looks at different fundraising methods, and identifies ways in which personal data is likely to be used in each case.

The series is designed specifically for fundraisers and those in smaller organisations, and focuses on practical application of the law to real life scenarios.

Fundraising Regulator Head of Policy, Gerald Oppenheim said, “These ‘bite-size’ documents address questions we have received from fundraisers struggling to ensure their methods are GDPR compliant. We hope the new guidance will help fundraisers to feel confident in their practices in the lead up to May.”

The material signposts to more detailed guidance from key sources to fully equip fundraisers ahead of 25th May 2018. Download the six part Spotlight series.
