    Default Fundraising Section Rules

    Fundraising Rules

    All fundraising posts will be approved by a moderator before being displayed. Please read these rules carefully as any posts that do not meet them will not be approved.

    What Is Permitted


    This section is for fundraising competitions and events, not requests for donations. The fundraising must be for a named rescue, with the money sent directly to the rescue or a volunteer agreed in advance by the rescue.

    If you are fundraising on behalf of a rescue you must have their written permission in advance.

    Fundraising posts must include the following information:

    The full name, address and contact information for the rescue and, if different, the person collecting the money. Note: if you do not want your postal address displayed please note this and it will be removed before the post is approved.

    Information on how to enter, rules governing how the competition/event will be run and a description of the prize(s). It is your responsibility to ensure the event meets government regulations regarding fundraising this is particularly important for raffles and lotteries.

    The deadline for entries, how the winner will be selected and when the prize(s) will be sent.

    An itemized list of any costs eg prizes/postage that will be deducted from the money raised.

    A statement confirming you have the permission of the rescue to act on their behalf.

    Within 48 hours of completion of the event the organiser must post the following information:

    Name of the winner(s)
    Total amount raised

    Please Note

    Approval of a fundraising post means that we feel it meets the above rules. It is not an endorsement by the forum or moderators. It is up to individuals as to whether they wish to participate in a fundraiser based on the information given by the fundraising member/rescue.

    If you are making personalised items, it would be wise to secure payment before producing the item.

    Please contact Leanne in the first instance, if your thread has not been approved within a week.

    Please could I ask a couple of questions.

    It says competitions and events, can that include sponsorships like the one I am running at the moment? Does that count as an event?

    Is selling things like the biscuits allowed in fundraising or do they have to go in the for sale section now?

    Also do the fundraising posts get posted on here and then automatically sent to a mod or do they have to be sent directly to a mod by us?

    Sorry if it already says that and I've missed it , its late

    I'd like to know the answer to this too please, as I now don't know where I stand with the fundraising fleece quilts that I make and sell to raise money for Celia at Kirkby.

    Thanks

    If you start a topic in here, like you post normally, it will automatically be placed in a queue to be checked by a mod and won't display until they approve it.

    If there are part of the rules that don't apply to your event eg there isn't a 'winner' just miss that part. It's hard to write rules that apply to every situation so mods will use their disgression.

    I'm going to ask the rescues what they prefer re items for sale. One logical thing would be to list things that are straight items for sale in the for sale section (with the fundraising marker) and anything that's an event in here. If so we will give rescues free access to post in the for sale section.

    wouldn't it be better to have a separate 'for sale' section in fundraising? Some people (me included) never go in the "items for sale and wanted" section.

    what about people who fundraise on behalf of rescues like myself? I've sold stuff in the past for the dog shelter...

    You'd need to follow the same fundraising rules but again there would be no charge for a fundraising item. If we decide to put those items in for sale - we'd just move the post in there for you

    Can I ask one more question please?

    It states that you can't ask for donations, is this just money donations or donations of "stuff" as well? eg when we run short of towels we sometimes ask on here for towels to be donated

    We've never allowed straight requests for cash in fundraising. Asking for items is fine though although you'd probably want to go for rabbit chat for that - it's not really fundraising as such
