The body has launched its first guidelines on beneficiary gifts, where money is spent on a charitable activity or product.
Director of policy and campaigns Megan Pacey said that these schemes have become increasingly popular over the last two years. But there have been stories in the press questioning the fluctuating price that different charities charge for similar gifts.
The new guidelines say charities should be open about how the money is spent.
The guidelines state: ‘This reduces the risk of any misunderstandings and the risk of damaging the reputation of not only the charity, but the sector as a whole.’
