It appears that if you sign up to a charity and the person is not a employee of the charity,the first 115% of your donation goes to the chugger and their agency. Check that the person you are talking to, is a member of staff from the charity you want to support.

Where does the £15 come from?

The 115% is based on repeated annual or monthly donations, so on a monthly donation, the agency gets approximately the first 14 months.

Not the first to say it but if you are approached by a collector on the streets and are interested in making a regular donation don't do it there. Go online later and set it up so more goes to the charity.

A fundraiser is legally obliged to point out ("point out", not "tell you if asked") if they are paid for fundraising.
If they don't I would suggest reporting whoever they work for to the PFRA, sounds a bit extreme doing so, but if paid they are a marketer not a fundraiser and they're scamming you out of a considerable amount of money by not telling you where the money goes.

@bobobob, unless the person is employed directly by the charity, and there is a membership pack involved, its cheaper for the charity to hand it out there and then, rather than post it.

And how about the exciting new invention e-mail with attachments? How expensive is that?

Clifford, you can not e-mail membership packs.

Really? So you've not seen the job application packs that consist of a series of pdf files? Or the National Trust membership pack? Or, just as another example, the Allianz Worldwide Care membership pack?

Clifford, good point, I was referring more to extensive packs that include cuddly toys, bug finders, or interactive educational packs, reserve guides, etc etc.

@billy sugger It's short for Charity Mugger, those irritatingly enthusiastic clipboard wielding types after your cash by making you feel bad and unalturistic.

The money that you give to charities and their agents is a drop in the ocean compared to that which you have given to the banksters via inflation, bailouts and the rest of their untransparent devices. First things first, find out who's got the cake before you worry about the crumbs. The swindle is so big you can't see it. All the political parties are in on it by ignorance or design. For goodness sake wake up so I can shut up.
