Guidance Notes: Know Your Donor/Refusing Donations


This Guidance Notes: Know Your Donor/Refusing Donations is designed to provide a quick reference to key issues on the topic of when and whether it would be appropriate for a charity to refuse to accept a proposed donation from a particular donor. 

This Note is accompanied by, and can be used in conjunction with, the Charity Commission’s Know Your Donor Due Diligence Questionnaire. The Questionnaire is also available on the Commission’s website here and in our Free section under the heading “Donations – Due Diligence Questionnaire”.

The Commission also has a very detailed guidance note on “Due diligence, monitoring and verifying the end use of charitable funds” which can be found free on the Commission’s website here and we recommend that you read it. Amongst the areas covered by the Commission’s note is the topic of refusing proposed donations.
