Commitment to Guidelines for Charitable Organisations

The Guidelines for Charitable Organisations Fundraising from the Public were issued by the Charities Regulator in September 2017 and are intended to assist trustees to run a charity effectively and comply with legal duties.

The basis for these guidelines is in the 2008 Statement of Guiding Principles on Fundraising that was developed by a steering group established in response to the Charities Act 200.  The process was led by the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group (now Charities Institute of Ireland) and supported by the Department of Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs.

Dublin Simon Community is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the The Guidelines for Charitable Organisations Fundraising from the Public and confirmed in our Donor Charter.

The Guideline 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 Guidelines 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.
