Ethical Statement on Donations

Ethical Statement on Donations

Donors usually have the best interests of the charity at heart and we will accept all donations unless:

  • The donor attaches conditions in return for their gift which are contrary to our objectives
  • The donor makes demands upon us which are unreasonable in relation to the nature of the support
  • The money has been raised through illegal or criminal means which could subsequently be challenged in courts
  • The cost of accepting a donation would be greater than the donation itself
  • The donation consists of goods, services or property which we cannot lawfully use, convert, exchange or sell in direct support of our charitable objectives
  • It can be seen that a personal benefit to an employee, volunteer, or trustee is associated with the donation
  • The money has been raised through means the Hospice does not believe to be morally acceptable
  • The activities of the donor are directly hostile to our objectives
  • Accepting the donation will divert from our stated aims and priorities
