  • take into account the needs of any potential donor who may be in a vulnerable circumstance to make an informed decision
  • return a donation given by someone who lacked capacity at the time of the donation

and that fundraisers must not:

  • exploit the lack of knowledge or apparent need for care and support of a donor at any time
  • accept donations when a fundraiser has grounds to believe that the donor lacks capacity to make a decision to donate
  • intrude on a person’s privacy , be unreasonably persistent or place undue pressure on a donor
