We are the self-regulatory body for face-to-face fundraising in Australia, established by charities with a mission to retain public trust and confidence in this vital method of fundraising.

Face-to-face fundraising

Face-to-face fundraising is one of a number of methods used by charities across Australia to generate funding. Nearly all fundraising requires an upfront investment by the charity. Face-to-face fundraising is one of the most efficient forms of fundraising.

Through consultation with our members, we have developed the PFRA Standard which is a set of rules that define how a face-to-face fundraiser should behave when talking to the public.

If you think the PFRA Standard has been breached, please report this as soon as possible to the member charity concerned.

Funding vital services

PFRA member charities are responsible for providing absolutely critical services in communities across Australia and globally.

Face-to-face fundraising provides Australian charities with significant funding, allowing them to carry out vital services for local communities across Australia and to work to solve some of the greatest global issues.

Without the funds raised through face-to-face fundraising, many of these services could not be delivered.

High standards are critical

PFRA members have committed to ensuring the highest possible standard for their face-to-face fundraising.

Fundraising is regulated at state and local government level and the PFRA provides an additional layer of self-regulation and active compliance to support this.

If you think the PFRA Standard has been breached, please report this as soon as possible to the member charity concerned.
