Reference Guide on Best Practices for Charitable Fund-raising Activities

The Government has promulgated the Reference Guide on Best Practices for Charitable Fund-raising Activities (the Reference Guide) for voluntary compliance of the charitable organisations. Members of the public may download the latest version of the Reference Guide here.
 

 

The Reference Guide is drawn up after due consultation to enhance transparency and public accountability of charitable fund-raising activities. The best practices of the Reference Guide cover areas on donors' rights, fund-raising practices and financial accountability. The public may make use of the Reference Guide to measure against the practice of a charity in fund-raising.
 

 

The Social Welfare Department appeals to charitable organisations for adopting the Reference Guide on a voluntary basis.
