Guidance for the assessment of the sources of grants and donations

  1. In principle, trustees and staff of a charity are expected to accept money given to that charity for purposes consistent with the charity objects, but the trustees have discretion to consider other factors relevant to the charity’s best interests.
  2. For any grant or donation, trustees and staff will balance the benefits of funding against any perceived reputational risks.
  3. Prisoners of Conscience Appeal Fund accepts donations on the clear understanding that the funder can have no influence over the independence of the Fund’s activities, other than being able to specify whether the donation is for unrestricted or restricted funding.
