New guidelines for charities

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 26, 2007

Ignorance of best practices can no longer be an excuse for charities that do not keep their house in order. A comprehensive set of guidelines on how these custodians of public donations should run themselves was released yesterday.

They range from how charities should manage programs and raise funds to who should sit on their boards.

The code of governance for charities and Institutions of Public Character (IPC) was drafted and finalised by the Charity Council after extensive public feedback.

It marks the first time that guidelines have been spelt out for all registered charities in Singapore, which are grouped according to the arts and heritage, community, education, health, religion, sports, social service and youth. (story)
