WTICD is open about whether those seeking donations on their behalf are volunteers, employees of the organisation or are third party agents.
Anyone fundraising on behalf of WTICD must ensure that prospective donors are aware of their status i.e. volunteer, employee or a third-party agent working on behalf of the charity.
If or when a member of the public enquires about the employment standing of a fundraiser they must receive an honest and open answer. The standing in this case relates to whether or not a fundraiser is a volunteer, a paid employee of the charitable organisation or a third-party agent working on behalf of the charity.
The recommended form of words are:
Volunteer: “I volunteer for WTIC”
Employee: “I work for WTIC”
Third Party Agent: “I work for ABC company and we have been engaged by WTIC to raise funds for them”
