Small charities are often more in touch with their donors than larger charities, and starting out in their fundraising efforts can be challenging on many fronts.

So, what can small charities do to ensure they are acting ethically?
In this episode Bianca chats to Katherine Raskob, the CEO of Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) - the professional fundraising body in Australia - about the FIA Code and the importance of ethics in best-practice fundraising.
Katherine has a wealth of experience as a charity board director and leader, and shares her advice for how small non-profits can act ethically and professionally when fundraising.
