Staff and volunteers involved in stewardship, development, and fundraising play a vital role in cultivating generosity in donors and helping them connect with Christian ministries that share their passion. Before launching into the actual work of raising resources, it is helpful for a charity to have parameters and policies relating to acceptable attitudes and methods of fundraising. This will ensure that the charity holds itself accountable and respects the interests of its donors.
All Canadian registered charities must comply with Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) guidance on fundraising. The guidance, Fundraising by Registered Charities, assists charities in determining whether CRA will consider their fundraising practices acceptable and how costs should be allocated.
