Guidelines for Charitable Organisations Fundraising from the Public

The RDS Council adopted the Charities Regulator’s Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the Public on 3 May 2018 and is committed to

  • Maintaining good fundraising practice.
  • Providing high levels of accountability and transparency to our donors and prospective donors from the public.
  • Providing clarity and assurances to you about how we spend your money.
  • Providing a report on our current fundraising activities in our most recent Annual Report.

The RDS has considered the Guidelines and believes it meets the standards it sets out.
