Best practice in fundraising

This Code is intended to outline good practice on fundraising by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.  It is not intended to cover every single aspect of fundraising but it does aim to raise awareness of the areas that need to be considered and the types and levels of controls that we have put in place.

This Code sets out the core fundraising principles of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and covers the area of cash handling, street and church gate collections, static collection boxes, bag packs and online fundraising.  At present these are the primary methods of fundraising employed by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.  The Society of St. Vincent de Paul does not undertake Direct Recruitment fundraising.

The National Office of Society of St. Vincent de Paul is fully committed to achieving and maintaining the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.
