The Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Outreach Project is open about whether those seeking donations on their behalf are volunteers, employees of the organisation or are third party agents.
Anyone fundraising on behalf of the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Outreach Project must ensure that prospective donors are aware of their status, i.e. volunteers, employees or third party agents.
“Donors have a 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.” (Statement of Guiding Principles for fundraising)
If or when a member of the public enquires about the employment status of a fundraiser they must receive an open, honest answer. The standing in the 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.
