More charities than ever before are seeking financial support, in more imaginative ways than in the past. Not all have the resources to broadcast their mission to the world, yet many are making a real difference with limited financial resources.
So how does a donor, or a volunteer, find organisations who serve in the area that interests them? Or having found the organisation, how does a donor or volunteer satisfy themselves that the organisation operates in an accountable manner, with good governance, appropriate stewardship, and a commitment to truthful communication?
One exciting new tool becoming available to donors and volunteers is the CMA Standard Council's 'Give Confidently' directory.
Whether you are making a trust distribution, formulating plans for a bequest, considering becoming a regular donor, making a one-off donation, or considering volunteering your time to serve a worthwhile organisation, we encourage you to look hard at our accredited partners. These are organisations who take accountability seriously, and strive to go beyond the basics in terms of good governance and good stewardship.
