NCVO asks members to donate to the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund

Umbrella body suggests an annual contribution of £1 for every employee


The National Council for Voluntary Organisations will ask all its members to make an annual donation of £1 for each of its employees to the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund.

The umbrella body has already made a donation of £95 – one for each of its employees – and plans to do so every year, it said.

Other charities, including the NSPCC and the think tank New Philanthropy Capital, have already agreed to do the same.

"We plan to publicise this in various ways," a spokeswoman for the NCVO said. "We’ll be talking about it in our fortnightly newsletter and bringing attention to it on Twitter. We’ll try to make our members aware of it whenever we can."

The CEBF, which was set up to support former and current charity employees facing hard times, will also write to the country’s largest charitable employers asking them to make annual donations based on the number of employees they have.
