Standards of Fundraising Practice


The Statement of Guiding Principles provides Irish charities with good practice standards for fundraising. It was developed by a steering group set up in response to the Charities Act 2009 following extensive consultation with industry experts and stakeholders including charities, non-profit organisations, legal and financial advisors, donors and academics.


Inspired is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising as outlined in our Public Compliance Statement, our Fundraising Policy and our Donor Charter.


The statement exists to:

  • Improve fundraising practice.
  • Promote high levels of accountability and transparency by organisations fundraising from the public.
  • Provide clarity and assurances to donors and prospective donors about the organisations they support.

We, Inspired, have considered the Statement and believe we meet the standards it sets out. Inspired report on our fundraising activities is available in our most recent Annual Report which is available on request from our office. We welcome your feedback on our performance via any of the contact points provided below.
