St. Vincent’s Hospice committed to Fundraising Standards
Friday 31st August 2018
St. Vincent’s Hospice have furthered their commitment to transparency and high standards, by signing up to the Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel Fundraising Guarantee.
The Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel was established for the purposes of overseeing enhanced self-regulation of fundraising in Scotland, being responsible for fundraising standards and to handle complaints relating to registered charities.
Director of Income Generation for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Jackie Young, said: “Everything we do is only made possible with the support from our donors and supporters. From comprehensive care in our In-patient Unit, to improving quality of life and independence through in our Day Hospice, to supporting patients and families in their own homes through our Community services, without your donations we simply couldn’t do what we do.
“That is why we signed up for the Good Fundraising Guarantee. It is our commitment to you that not only will we be clear about what we do with the money and our processes, but also that we will keep your data and information safe, respect your privacy, and honour your wishes about how we keep in touch.”
The Guarantee commits St. Vincent’s to complying with the law as it applies to charities and fundraising, as well as adhering to their Fundraising Code of Practice. They will also monitor fundraisers, volunteers and third parties to ensure they are also adhering to best practice.
