Acceptance and Refusal of Donations

We have a responsibility to ensure any member of staff or volunteer, accepting or being notified of donations, ensures it is being received from a genuine source and for the correct purpose. Special attention should be paid to donations that:

  • Are unusual or could indicate a higher risk such as larger donations, or those made through a third party
  • Where acceptance could cause reputational harm to the Association.

If you have concerns about any donations your branch or group is offered, please contact either Director of Finance, or Director of Fundraising, for advice. If checks reveal evidence of a crime, this must be reported to the police and/or other appropriate authorities.
