Guidelines for Charitable Organisations Fundraising from the Public
The RDS Council adopted the Charities Regulator’s Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the Public on 3 May 2018 and is committed to
- Maintaining good fundraising practice.
- Providing high levels of accountability and transparency to our donors and prospective donors from the public.
- Providing clarity and assurances to you about how we spend your money.
- Providing a report on our current fundraising activities in our most recent Annual Report.
The RDS has considered the Guidelines and believes it meets the standards it sets out.
