Funding non-charities: Guidance updated

The Charity Commission for England and Wales has updated guidance on funding organisations that are not charities. The guidance, drawing together existing regulation, outlines key considerations for foundations making grants to organisations including social enterprises, public sector bodies, and groups based overseas.

ACF is grateful to the Commission for engaging with the sector and addressing the points we raised during the consultation period

Carol Mack, chief executive of ACF, said:

"It’s really important to recognise that grant-making to organisations that are not charities, such as social enterprises and community groups, can be a highly effective way for charities to achieve their aims."
