Standards in Fundraising Practice

Commitment to Standards in Fundraising Practice

The Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising provides Irish charities with good practice standards for fundraising. It was developed by a steering group set up in response to the Charities Act 2009 following extensive consultation with industry experts and stakeholders including charities, non-profit organisations, legal and financial advisors, donors and academics. This process was led by the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group and supported by the Department of Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs.

Dublin Simon Community is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising as outlined in our Public Compliance Statement and our Donor Charter.

The statement exists to:

• Improve fundraising practice.
• Promote high levels of accountability and transparency by organisations fundraising from the public.
• Provide clarity and assurances to donors and prospective donors about the organisations they support.

We, Dublin Simon Community, have considered the Statement and believe we meet the standards it sets out.

Dublin Simon Community report on our fundraising activities is available in our most recent Annual Report which can be found here.
