Lawrie Simanowitz and Mairead O'Reilly have written an article for Governance magazine on the current state of charitable fundraising. They state that charitable fundraising is facing a "period of unprecedented media, public and legislative scrutiny", triggered from the recent reporting of the suicide of Olive Cooke, a charity supporter. A recent change in fundraising and regulatory law implicates how charities work with fundraisers and how they report on their fundraising activities. Lawrie and Mairead go on to discuss the future of charitable fundraising, suggesting that "the days of trustees delegating the oversight of fundraising to their senior managers seem to be over".
