The Statement of Guiding Principles – Where they came from

The Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising is a guide to best practice that has been developed by a steering group set up in response to the Charities Act 2009. It is a voluntary statement of intent that we, as fundraisers fully intend to follow and lead others to do the same.

It is important to us as Kerry charity who rely on the goodwill and generosity of the public, to instill a sense of openness, honesty and transparency amongst such valuable donors. It is not enough that we uphold what is expected of us by law, we intend to do our very best to provide the best services and have the utmost respect for our donors. see our donor’s charter here
