IoF calls for soft opt-in model for marketing emails and texts. The Institute of Fundraising has said that charities should not be prohibited from sending marketing emails and texts to their existing supporters without specific consent. In its submission to the EU Commission’s first public consultation on its proposed review of the eprivacy directive, the piece of legislation that informs the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, the IoF said the PECR’s explicit prohibition on charities using the "soft opt-in" rule when sending marketing emails and texts should be removed.

The soft opt-in rule means that businesses can email or text their own customers even if they have not specifically consented to receiving such communications. It cannot currently be used in charity fundraising and other non-commercial promotions, including political campaigning, which the IoF believes puts charities at a disadvantage.
