NCBI’s Commitment to Standards in Fundraising Practice
NCBI is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.
The statement was developed by the ICTR group and exists to provide charities in Ireland with a Fundraising Code of Practice.
The purpose of the statement is 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.
