Guiding Principles for Fundraising

We in the Irish Heart Foundation are fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.

We commit to doing this by:

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. It is a voluntary statement of intent that we, as fundraisers for the Irish Heart Foundation, fully intend to follow and lead others to do the same.

We at the Irish Heart Foundation have considered the Statement and we believe we meet the standards it sets out.

We welcome your feedback on our performance. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

It is important to us as a national charity who rely on the goodwill and generosity of the public, to instill a sense of openness, honesty and transparency amongst such valuable donors. It is not enough that we uphold what is expected of us by law, we intend to do our very best to provide the best services and have the utmost respect for our donors.
