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.

The statement was developed by the ICTR (Irish Charities Tax Research Ltd.) and exists to provide charities in Ireland with a Fundraising Code of Practice.

The purpose of the statement is to:

  • Improve the way charities in Ireland raise their funds
  • 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.
