Abstract: The Fundraising Principles attempt to map the terrain of fundraising regulation and self-regulation globally in order to understand the common interests and intersections of the philanthropic sector, government, and other stakeholders in building and maintaining strong, well-resourced CSOs while maintaining appropriate safeguards for the public, donors, and other stakeholders. They formulates principles in 7 key areas of fundraising regulation and self-regulation, including fundamental freedoms, fundraising methods; data protection and right to privacy; cross-border fundraising; taxation; transparency, accountability and oversight; and registration, licensing and permission. They are based on international and regional standards that guarantee the fundamental rights of CSOs, their employees and fundraisers to access resources and protect their right to privacy. Dr Oonagh B. Breen served as a one of a group of core international experts who guided the development of these Fundraising Principles. The core expert group comprised Eva E. Aldrich (CFRE International), Oonagh B. Breen (Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin), Pia Tornikoski (Finnish Fundraising Association) and Usha Menon (Usha Menon Management onsultancy Asia). They represent various sectors and fundraising professionals, representatives of CSOs, academia, and other stakeholder representatives.
