It’s surprising that Trustees don’t seem to have an understanding of their responsibilities as a Trustee.
One would have thought that Trustees would know that should they change the name of their Trust that they would also have to prepare a new Trust Deed.
Organisations refer supporters to the Charities Register so that potential donors know an organisation is genuine.
What impact must it have on people to see that the Trust Deed they have been referred to doesn’t name the organisation they are enquiring about.
Credibility down the drain.
Make Sure you have the right information that your donors want to hear … if what you are telling them is not what they can find out will do you and, the charity sector as a whole no good.
If in doubt … ask, and ask some more.
