‘Bad’ investments are putting charity donations at risk
By Charlene Cranny, Charity Finance
CHARITIES COULD lose supporters if they don’t ensure that environmental and social issues are considered when it comes to investing their charity’s pension, endowment or other assets. Research for Good Money Week by YouGov last year found that 77 per cent of GB public would be likely to withhold donations if they found out that a charity invested its endowment or other assets contrary to its mission. High profile charities such as Comic Relief have faced criticism in recent years on this issue.
