Guiding principles for fundraising

Concern Worldwide is committed to achieving the standards outlined in the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.

The statement provides Irish charities with good practice standards for fundraising. It was developed after extensive consultation with industry experts and stakeholders including charities, non-profit organisations, legal and financial advisors, donors and academics.

This process was led by the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group and supported by the then Department of Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs.


The statement aims to:  

  • Improve the way charities in Ireland raise their funds  
  • Promote accountability and transparency among charities  
  • Provide clarity and assurances to donors about the organisations they support
