Where a Scottish charity has an agreement covering the activities of a business partner operating in England and Wales (or where an English or Welsh charity has an agreement on the activities of a business partner operating in Scotland), it must ensure that the contract complies with the legal requirements of the country where the fundraising is carried out. If the fundraising agreement does not contain all of these requirements, professional fundraisers and business participants must also meet the following additional standards. indicate in writing whether they are paid (unless they are a benevolent fundraiser and an employee or representative of the charity concerned or a company related to it and they carry out the fundraising). A professional fundraiser or business participant must transfer the money to you as quickly as possible and, in any case, within 28 days, unless they have a reasonable excuse. The written agreement between you and the third party must contain conditions defining what is considered confidential information. Consequence of fundraising without a fundraising agreement Before requesting money or other goods, a professional fundraiser must have a written agreement with you. The agreement must be signed by both you, on your behalf and the professional fundraiser. You will find two other forms of commercial sponsorship agreement, which was written more in favor of the sponsor, in the sponsorship contract sub-file in our business file. They must have verification procedures in place in the agreement. You should consider the third party`s performance during these checks and decide whether other measures are appropriate (e.g. B revision of the agreement or activation of punitive clauses which may be part of the agreement).
In England and Wales, you must meet this standard. The terms of the agreement between the licensee and the commercial collection should be established in writing and focus on: a professional fundraiser or business participant must transfer funds to you in accordance with the rules of Charities and Benevolent Fundraising (Scotland) Regulations 2009. In Scotland, funds must be transferred as quickly as possible and, in any event, within 28 days of receipt. Scottish law does not allow you to agree on anything else, as well as the professional fundraiser or business participants, and this period cannot be extended, even if the fundraiser has a reasonable excuse for not providing you with the funds on time. If your third-party donation collector has or may have a conflict of interest, you may not enter into an agreement with them without the permission of the person or organization whose interests are in conflict with their interests. In the event of a significant conflict of interest, both parties should consider whether it is appropriate to continue the relationship. Business participants must file a statement of formal notice, whenever a commercial advertising business is declared or implied that the money is paid to one or more non-profit organizations or that it is used for charitable, philanthropic or charitable purposes. Professional fundraisers or business participants who have entered into a donation agreement with a charity must provide the benevolent organization with all records and information about the agreement if they request it. . .
