Fitzwilliam's donations policy
All those involved in fundraising for charitable organisations, including universities and colleges have a responsibility to donors, to the organisation, and to the cause that is being supported.
People in Vulnerable Circumstances
Everyone has the right to support their favourite causes and charities but we also have an obligation to ensure decisions are informed.
This promise outlines the commitment made to alumni, donors and other supporters by the universities and colleges which register with the Fundraising Regulator.
