Fundraising Promise

Health Poverty Action is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board.  As part of our commitment we abide by the Fundraising Promise, which means:

WE ARE COMMITTED TO HIGH STANDARDS

  • We do all we can to ensure that fundraisers, volunteers and fundraising contractors working with us to raise funds, comply with the Code and with this Promise
  • We comply with the law including those that apply to data protection, health and safety and the environment.

WE ARE HONEST AND OPEN

  • We tell the truth and do not exaggerate
  • We do what we say we are going to do
  • We answer all reasonable questions about our fundraising activities and costs.

WE ARE CLEAR

  • We are clear about who we are, what we do and how your gift is used
  • Where we have a promotional agreement with a commercial company, we make clear how much of the purchase price we receive
  • We give a clear explanation of how you can make a gift and amend a regular commitment.

WE ARE RESPECTFUL

  • We respect the rights, dignities and privacy of our supporters and beneficiaries
  • We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift and if you do not want to give or wish to cease giving, we will respect your decision
  • If you tell us that you don’t want us to contact you in a particular way we will not do so.

WE ARE FAIR AND REASONABLE

  • We take care not to use any images or words that cause unjustifiable distress or offence
  • We take care not to cause unreasonable nuisance or disruption.

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE

  • If you are unhappy with anything we’ve done whilst fundraising, you can contact us to make a complaint
  • We have a complaints procedure, a copy of which is available on request
  • If we cannot resolve your complaint, we accept the authority of the Fundraising Standards Board to make a final adjudication.

If you have any comments or complaints about the way Health Poverty Action conducts our fundraising, please contact Sabrina at s.lloyd@healthpovertyaction.org.
