MDI Disclosure Statement
The Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising sets out the following in relation to disclosure:
“Donors have the right to be informed of the status and authority of those soliciting donations; for example, donors will be informed if fundraisers are employees of the organisation or third party agents”.
MDI is open about whether those seeking donations on its behalf are volunteers, employees of the organisation or are third party agents. Anyone fundraising on behalf of MDI must ensure that prospective donors are aware of their status
i.e., volunteers, employees or third party agent working on behalf of the charity.
If or when a member of the public enquires about the employment standing of a fundraiser they must receive an honest and open answer. The standing in this case relates to whether or not a fundraiser is a volunteer, a paid employee of the charitable organisation or a third party agent working on behalf of the charity.
