Charity Fundraising Whistleblowing Policy
This Charity Fundraising Whistleblowing Policy document is designed to be adopted by a medium sized charity without the need for any major amendment except as necessary to meet the charity’s particular features and circumstances. However, it can also be amended to suit a smaller charity.
Since 30 November 2017, all charities have been required to have a fundraising whistleblowing policy, either as a stand alone policy or as part of a more general whistleblowing policy.
The requirement to have such a policy derives from the Charity Commission's Guidance CC20 (7 June 2016). CC20 obliges all charities to follow the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice. The Code itself obliges all fundraising organisations to have a Whistleblowing Policy relating to fundraising conduct which contains at least the features spelt out in that Code.
This Charity Fundraising Whistleblowing Policy template complies with the Code, and, in particular, it contains the features required by the Code. The template contains a policy and procedure which will enable any employee or volunteer to report internally, as a whistleblower, any concern s/he has about any conduct of the charity or its staff or trustees in relation to fundraising. It provides protection for the employee or volunteer against any dismissal, victimisation, harassment, discrimination or disadvantage arising due to their reporting any concern pursuant to the Policy.
This template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
