The Fundraising Regulator is urging charities to take part in an online survey designed to improve its website.

The regulator wants charities and members of the public to give feedback on issues such as how easy it is to access information and what it could do better.

The site was created two years ago. The regulator said in a statement that integrating some processes "would allow for a better experience for those that need to access the information and services offered".

Stephen Dunmore, chief executive of the regulator, said: "We are now at a point where we need to make major changes to the website to suit the needs of its users."

The survey can be found here.

The Sage Foundation is donating licences for its latest people-management software to not-for-profit organisations.

The UK-based accounting, payroll and payment systems company is also offering 50 per cent licence contributions on all subsequent licences for Sage Business Cloud People.

The news comes after November's launch of the Sage Foundation Enterprise Fund grants, from which $1m (£714,000) has so far been awarded to small not-for-profits with unique ideas.

To be eligible for donated and discounted licences, organisations must be registered with their local TechSoup partner, which is the Tech Trust in the UK. They must also run programmes aligned with the foundation’s values.

The digital marketing agency Search Seven is celebrating its seventh birthday by organising a fundraising campaign to raise £17,000 for seven charities.

Charities based close to the Brighton agency will benefit from the #Share7 campaign. Funds will be generated from three charity events: a football match, a golf day and a quiz night.

Gavin Willis, managing director and founder of Search Seven, said: "In our first six years in business, we managed to raise a total of £17,000 for various causes.

"2018 is going to be a big year for us as we aim to match six years’ worth of fundraising in just one year."

Charity property: could you be entitled to a huge VAT saving?

Promotion from Third Sector promotion

When a property is being constructed, VAT is charged at the standard rate. But if you're a charity, health body, educational institution, housing association or finance house, the work may well fall into a category that justifies zero-rating - and you could make a massive saving
