Donor Bill of Rights

This is a widely used statement outlining an "industry standard" of what how we, as fundraisers and nonprofits, should view and treat our donors.  

The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits. It has been endorsed by numerous organizations.
