Good Practice Guide on Charitable Fund-raising


The Social Welfare Department (SWD), the Home Affairs Department and the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department have jointly issued the “Good Practice Guide on Charitable Fund-raising (Good Practice Guide)” to replace the “Reference Guide on Best Practices for Charitable Fund-raising Activities” previously published by the SWD for voluntary adoption by the charitable organisations and reference of the public.


The Good Practice Guide is developed based on the observations and recommendations in Chapter 2 of the Director of Audit’s Report No. 68, and the report of the Public Accounts Committee of the Legislative Council. The Good Practice Guide covers areas on donors' rights, fund-raising practices and financial accountability issues. The public may make use of the Good Practice Guide to measure against the practice of a charity in fund-raising.


Charitable organisations and the public may download the Good Practice Guide here.
