Responsibilities & requirements

How it works

Fundraisers must follow certain rules when asking Albertans for charitable donations.

Three key responsibilities set by the Charitable Fund-raising Act and Regulation are:

  • disclosing information to donors
  • preparing financial statements
  • keeping proper records

Charitable organizations and fund-raising businesses can be fined if they are convicted of offences under the Act.
