Recession Info from the Charity Commission

Following news that more than half of charities are now feeling the impact of the downturn, the Charity Commission is conducting research into how trusts and foundations have reacted to the recession and the impact this has had on charities that they fund.

The research, scheduled for publication in June, will form part of a series of Commission reports focusing on the economic downturn. A second report, commissioned by the regulator, will investigate whether or not charity trustees are responding strategically to fundraising issues in light of the recession.

The Charity Commission will also be providing charity trustees with a check-list of key issues to be addressed in a recession, in the form of a model board paper. Focusing on the needs of smaller charities, the paper will be available on the Commission’s website – www.charity-commission.gov.uk.
