At Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity we are committed to ensuring that our fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful. As a member of the Fundraising Regulator you can give with confidence, knowing that we comply with their principles.

We Are Committed to High Standards

  • We adhere to the Fundraising Code of Conduct.
  • We do all we can to monitor and ensure that fundraisers, volunteers and fundraising third parties working with us to raise funds, also comply with the Code of Fundraising Practice.
  • We comply with the law as it applies to charities and fundraising.

We Are Clear, Honest and Open

  • We will tell the truth and will not exaggerate.
  • We will do what we say we are going to do with the donations we receive.
  • We will be clear about who we are and what we do.
  • We will give a clear explanation of how you can make a gift and change a regular donation.
  • Where we ask a third party to fundraise on our behalf, we will make the relationship and the financial arrangement transparent.
  • We are able to explain our fundraising costs and if challenged, can show they are in the best interests of the charity.

We Are Respectful

  • We will respect your rights and privacy.
  • We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift. If you do not want to give or wish to stop giving, we will respect your decision.
  • Where the law requires, we will get your consent before we contact you to fundraise.
  • If you tell us that you don’t want us to contact you in a particular way we will not do so.

We Will Be Fair and Reasonable

  • We will treat donors and the public fairly, showing sensitivity and adapting our approach depending on your needs. 
  • We will take care not to use any images or words that intentionally cause distress or anxiety.

We Will Be Accountable and Responsible

  • We will manage our resources responsibly and consider the impact of our fundraising, our donors, supporters and the wider public.
  • We ensure our complaints process is clear and easily accessible. If you are unhappy with anything we've done whilst fundraising, you can contact us to make a complaint.
  • We will listen to feedback and respond appropriately to compliments and criticism we receive.
  • We have a complaints procedure, a copy of which is available on request. Our complaints procedure also lets you know how to contact the Fundraising Regulator in the event that any response to a complaint about our fundraising is felt to be unsatisfactory.
  • We monitor and record the number of fundraising complaints we receive each year and will share this data with the Fundraising Regulator on request.
