Our Fundraising Promise
Turning Point Scotland is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) self regulatory scheme. The FSB works to ensure that organisations raising money for charity from the public do so honestly and properly. As members of this scheme we follow the practices of the Institute of Fundraising Codes of Fundraising Practice and comply with the key principles embodied in the Codes and in this Promise.
We are committed to high standards
- We do all we can to ensure that fundraisers, volunteers and fundraising contractors working with us to raise funds comply with the Codes

We are open and honest
- We tell the truth and do not exaggerate
- We do what we say we are going to do
- We answer all reasonable questions about our fundraising activities and costs. Please contact us or see our annual accounts for further details
We are clear
- We are clear about who we are, what we do and how your gift is used
- Where we have a promotional agreement with a commercial company we make clear how much of the purchase price we receive
- We give a clear explanation of how you can make a gift and amend a regular commitment
We are respectful
- We respect the rights, dignities and privacy of our supporters and beneficiaries.
- We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift and if you do not want to give or wish to cease giving we will respect your decision.
- If you tell us that you do not want us to contact you in a particular way we will not do so.
We are fair and reasonable
- We take care not to use any images or words that cause unjustifiable distress or offence

We are accountable
