In determining HelpAge International's Ethical Fundraising Policy, its board of trustees is aware of the need to ensure an adequate and sustainable funding base. In accordance with charity law, HelpAge's trustees have an obligation to maximise resources for the charity and, in turn, expenditure on activities that benefit the millions of poor older people around the world.
No fundraising costs were incurred for generating voluntary income because we do not raise funds from the public directly in the UK.
We welcome donations to support our work with older people in developing countries. Make a donation online today.
