Commercial Businesses & Third Party Agencies

Commercial/business agencies are companies whose main role is offering professional fundraising services to the charitable sector. This would typically include:

  • Agencies offering telemarketing or face to face fundraising services
  • Direct marketing agencies
  • Online donation sites and platforms
  • Crowd funding sites for charities
  • Payroll giving services
  • Commercial clothing collectors
  • Companies exclusively offering fundraising products e.g. charity christmas cards.

This would not include:

  • Companies engaged in a promotional charitable venture whose primary purpose isn’t to offer fundraising services e.g. a bank offering a donation to charity as part of its account services.
