The FRSB says the number of complaints about doorstep fundraising had increased by 93%, prompting it to launch a probe into issues raised by the public.

It follows a report by New Philanthropy Capital last week saying 29% of the public felt charities unduly pressured them to donate, meaning charities were sacrificing the public’s respect in a quest raise more cash. What do you think…is the financial climate making charities too pushy?

Ah. Charities should fundraising but not ask people for money. Interesting
