Leaders from national fundraising associations around the world have agreed on a code of ethics for the sector.

The fundraising leaders gathered at the International Fundraising Summit, hosted by the Institute of Fundraising in London today following three days of the IoF’s annual fundraising convention.

Delegates approved a revised version of the International Statement of Ethical Principles, which outlines an ethical approach for fundraisers and is centred on shared principles for fundraising, which are aimed to be rooted in honesty, respect, integrity, transparency and responsibility.

The Summit was designed for leaders from around the world to reflect and discuss common opportunities, challenges and solutions for developing fundraising as well as sharing general insight from across the globe.

“I’m delighted to welcome the international fundraising community to London to sign the International Statement of Ethical Principles,” IoF chief executive Peter Lewis said.

“It’s an important symbol of international cooperation across the fundraising community and recognises that wherever supporters are asked for money, it should always happen to a high standard and according to ethical principles.

“I’m proud that the IoF is supporting this work which contributes to the delivery of excellent standards of fundraising across the world.”
