Other donors give significant grants to charity and the charity may have a close working relationship with them. It is for significant donors like these that trustees are likely to need to carry out further due diligence and take steps to identify and verify the identity of the donor so they can assess any risks. For example, if you know that the donor you are familiar with is from a country or operates a business, perhaps outside of the UK, about which public concerns have been raised, then the trustees should take more steps to verify the provenance of the funds. If there is a significant donor which is an organisation, the charity should know what its business is and be assured that the organisation is appropriate for the charity to be involved or linked with. If the donor is a company, its details can be checked on the Companies House website. Sometimes risks can be identified by carrying out a check on the organisation’s website or using other internet search engines to look at other information written about it. However, care should be taken to assess how reliable the information is. For example, is the information repeating allegations others have made? Were they proven? How old is the information?
