New guidance: Charity Commission publishes guide to help charities making grants to non-charitable organisations
Charities will welcome publication of the Charity Commission's free guidance for charities seeking to make grants to non-charitable organisations.
The Commission says that the guidance, Grant funding an organisation that isn't a charity, explains what you need to do if you are considering a grant to an organisation that isn't (or may not be) a charity.
It covers donations to all non-charitable organisations, including Community Interest Companies, social enterprises and public sector bodies (such as NHS Trusts) and 'brings together into one place all the existing key principles for trustees to base their decisions on from other existing pieces of guidance'.
The guide includes a helpful infographic to help charities make sure they have taken into account all relevant factors when considering making a grant.
