Governance

Breakthrough Cancer Research continues to demonstrate openness, transparency and integrity to our donors, supporters, volunteers and funding partners by operating rigorously to the triple lock standards set out by the Charity Institute of Ireland – good fundraising, transparent annual financial reporting and governance. 

 

1. Good Fundraising : Commitment to Standards in Fundraising Practice

The Board of Breakthrough has formally adopted, is signed up to and is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.

 

The Statement exists to:

  • Improve fundraising practice
  • Promote high levels of accountability and transparency by organisations fundraising from the public
  • Provide clarity and assurances to donors and prospective donors about the organisations they support.

 

We, Breakthrough Cancer Research, have considered the Statement and believe we meet the standards it sets out.
