Anti-Bribery Principles for Not-For-Profit Organisations

While it is in the nature of not-for-profits (NFPs) to want to operate with integrity, many NFPs are uncertain about the measures they should be adopting to comply with the new UK Bribery Act. This tool aims to fill the gap by providing anti-bribery advice for such organisations of any size in the corruption-resources-corruption-resources-educational, voluntary, charitable, arts & heritage and related sectors.


While it is in the nature of not-for-profits (NFPs) to want to operate with integrity, many corruption-resources-corruption-resources-educational, voluntary, charitable, arts & heritage, and other NFPs are uncertain about the measures they should be adopting to comply with the new UK Bribery Act. Indeed, of the 120 charities recently surveyed, only 1% said they think bribery might have a significant impact on their organisation.

Through a variety of case studies and scenarios – from a bribe being paid to an official to gain a planning license for a distribution depot for relief supplies, to parents offering to make a substantial gift to a school with the proviso that their child is guaranteed admission, this tool aims to help not-for-profit organisations by:

  • Giving practical anti-bribery advice
  • Identifying the types of bribery risk in the sector
  • Providing best practice checklists

As well has having the potential to severely effect an organisation legally, reputationally and organisationally, bribery and corruption damage society. The effects of bribery can be seen everywhere. From corroded political and human rights to distorted markets, stolen aid resources to damaged infrastructure and environments; bribery affects us all.

Not-for-profits have in common missions and activities rooted in high-level values and making a positive contribution to society. It is therefore particularly important that such organisations demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to bribery, and put in place appropriate anti-bribery measures. We hope this guidance will assist them.
