Fundraising promise

At CAFOD, we have made this Fundraising Promise to our supporters. It outlines how we will behave when doing our fundraising and ensures fundraising is legal, honest, open, transparent and accountable.

The Fundraising Promise

We are committed to high standards

  • We do all we can to ensure that fundraisers, volunteers and fundraising contractors working with us to raise funds, comply with this Promise
  • We comply with the law including those that apply to data protection, health and safety and the environment

We are honest and open

  • We tell the truth and do not exaggerate
  • We do what we say we are going to do
  • We answer all reasonable questions about our fundraising activities and costs

We are clear

  • We are clear about who we are, what we do and how your gift is used
  • Where we have a promotional agreement with a commercial company, we make clear how much of the purchase price we receive
  • We give a clear explanation of how you can make a gift and amend a regular commitment

We are respectful

  • We respect the rights, dignities and privacy of our supporters and beneficiaries
  • We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift and if you do not want to give or wish to cease giving, we will respect your decision
  • If you tell us that you don’t want us to contact you in a particular way we will not do so

We are fair and reasonable

  • We take care not to use any images or words that cause unjustifiable distress or offence
  • We take care not to cause unreasonable nuisance or disruption

We are accountable

  • If you are unhappy with anything we’ve done whilst fundraising, you can contact us to make a complaint.

 

CAFOD is committed to good fundraising practice and will be registering with the new Fundraising Regulator when their registration process launches in Autumn 2016.

The Fundraising Regulator sets and maintains the standards for charitable fundraising in the United Kingdom.
