2020 opened with news on several calamities, such as the Australian wildfires and biodiversity loss, the Taal Volcano quakes, ashfall, and local community displacement, and the Benguet forest fire razing some 150 hectares of trees. 

As these occurred, stories of a novel, pneumonia-like disease infecting thousands throughout China permeated international news. Within just the last month, the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) has spread rapidly all over the globe, prompting nations to take drastic measures to prevent its further spread. The pandemic is currently straining healthcare systems, restricting movement, interrupting education and daily lives, and disrupting global economies.

In the midst of all these calamities, it is heartwarming to witness the renewal of the Bayanihan spirit and see individuals and groups volunteering and sharing their personal resources to support the affected sectors.

It is our hope that Askers will continue to uphold ethical standards, particularly their transparency and accountability for the resources they received, and provide a secure and pleasant giving experience to the Givers.

As such, we thought it was necessary to share the Donor Bill of Rights – every current, and future Giver and Asker’s rulebook to safeguarding respect, trust, and accountability in philanthropy. 

The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the Association of Fund Raising Professionals, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits, to “assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in not-for-profit organizations and causes.”
