Guidance published on acceptance or refusal of donations

The Institute of Fundraising (IoF) has published guidance that will help trustees and fundraisers make clear and consistent decisions regarding accepting and refusing donations.

The IoF’s guide sets out the legal and practical considerations for charities when deciding whether they should accept donations in various situations and states there is often no straightforward right or wrong answer. All matters should be considered on a case by case basis, says the guide.

Michaela Johns, HWB’s charity specialist, says: “I welcome the publication of this guide as it clearly outlines the parameters charities must carefully consider when accepting, refusing or returning donations.

“Risk management, reputation protection and the charity’s best interests are clearly at the heart of the decision-making process and I would urge trustees to look at the guidance.”
