Give with confidence
For the OPC, financial transparency is a fundamental value.
The OPC can guarantee its rigorous management which reassures donors, individuals and businesses that they can support us in the knowledge of where their donation is going and how it is being used :
The accounts are certified by a government auditor ;
The accounts are set up by an independent accounting firm ;
The OPC is voluntarily a member of the Comité de la Charte - Don en confiance (an organisation which oversees the finances of charities and foundations).
The Comité de la Charte defines 4 main principles which the OPC scrupulously abides by :
A registered authority and impartial management : The collective authorities (general assembly, board of directors, etc.) must be fully involved in the guidance and overseeing of managers. Particular attention must be given to certain cases where there is a risk of conflict of interests between managers and the organisation, or between the organisation and charitable donors (most notably with regards to research).
Rigorous Management : Approved organisations are committed to using management methods aimed at optimising the allocation of funds by putting in place controls and procedures at every level. Suppliers must be chosen based on professional criteria and after competitive assessment.
Impeccable communication and fund-raising : An approved organisation must clearly state what it is doing or what it plans to do and fully uphold its commitments. It must respect legislative rules and provisions, particularly those relating to computer files and appeals for charitable donations. As part of its social purpose it must allocate funds according to the wishes of the donor.
Absolute financial transparency with respect to charitable donors : Organisations approved by the Comité de la Charte must have their accounting records annually certified by a government auditor. Each year they must publish their balance sheets and their resources accounts for their donors, compare them to previous years and provide clear and honest comments.
As an approved organisation, the OPC can therefore put the Comité de la Charte logo on its appeals for charitable donations from the public.
