The Mandatory Disclosure of Cost of Fundraising Ratios: Does it achieve the regulators’ purposes?

Flack, Ted (2004) The Mandatory Disclosure of Cost of Fundraising Ratios: Does it achieve the regulators’ purposes? QUT.


This paper explores the question - "Does the mandatory disclosure of cost of fundraising ratios achieve the regulators' purposes?" and finds that there are serious practical and theoretical reasons why cost of fundraising ratios do not achieve the regulators purposes. The paper goes on to suggest that regulators should be encouraging public fundraising charities to disclose a range of information about their achievements including financial and non-financial performance, so that the cost of fundraising can be put in context with other more useful information to donors and the public.
