The Trustees of the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) have signed up and are fully committed to adopting the Guidelines for charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the public.
The Fund is working to actively demonstrate openness, transparency and integrity to its beneficiaries and you our donors by operating towards achieving the triple lock standards of-transparent reporting, good fundraising and governance.
As a member of Charities Institute Ireland the OCF supports the development of these three industry standards.
The OCF prepares a trustee annual report and financial statements in full compliance with the Charity SORP (Standard of Reporting Practice under FRS102).
FRS102 is the applicable standard for Public Benefit entities whose financial statements are intended to give a true and fair view of the financial position and income and expenditure for a period. OCF annual accounts are filed with the Charities Regulatory Authority (CRA) each year.
The adoption of the ‘Charities Governance Code’ as devised by the CRA, will be fully adopted by 2020.
The OCF works to ensure it complies with all necessary legal requirements, Registration with the Charities Regulatory Authority, GDPR legislation, employment legislation and health & safety legislation.
The OCF is committed to achieving the standards outlined in the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising developed by the ICTR (Irish Charities Tax Research Ltd) to provide charities with a fundraising code of practice to ensure the above values and standards.
All staff, volunteers and anyone else fundraising on behalf of the OCF are fully trained on the ICTR requirements and we have implemented controls to ensure that all the fundraising practices are fully in line with the Codes of Practice. The OCF will review and report annually on compliance as part of this commitment.
