As a member of the Fundraising Regulator we aim to promote the Fundraising Promise wherever practical. 

The Fundraising Promise

The Fundraising Regulator's Fundraising Promise outlines the commitment made to donors and the public by fundraising organisations which register with the Fundraising Regulator.

The following four values support all standards in the code.

Legal: All fundraising must meet the requirements of the law.

Open: Fundraisers must be open with the public about their processes and must be willing to explain (where appropriate) if they are asked for more information.

Honest: Fundraisers must act with integrity and must not mislead the public about the cause they are fundraising for or the way a donation will be used.

Respectful: Fundraisers must demonstrate respect whenever they have contact with any member of the public

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Your feedback helps us to improve our service.
