Dogs Trust Ireland is open about whether those seeking donations on their behalf are volunteers, employees of the organisation or are third party agents.
If or when a member of the public enquires about the employment standing of a fundraiser they must receive an honest and open answer. The standing in this case relates to whether or not a fundraiser is a volunteer, a paid employee of the charitable organisation or a third party agent working on behalf of the charity.
The recommended form of words are:
Dogs Trust Ireland Volunteer
"I volunteer for Dogs Trust"
Dogs Trust Ireland Employee
"I work for Dogs Trust"
Third Party Agent
"I work for ABC company and we have been engaged by Dogs Trust to raise funds for them"
