Ethical Principles of Fundraising

It is DiMe's mission to serve professionals at the intersection of the global healthcare and technology communities, supporting them in developing digital medicine through interdisciplinary collaboration, research, teaching, and the promotion of best practices. The overarching goal of DiMe is to advance digital medicine to optimize human health.

DiMe will accept financial support from organizations operating within the field of digital medicine. DiMe solicits and uses such financial support in a manner consistent with the Principles for Donations:

Principles for Donations

DiMe will endeavor to remain free of excess influence related to financial support.

DiMe recognizes a donation to be an arrangement with industry; a company; organization or individual that provides financial support to DiMe in exchange for value‐neutral acknowledgement that neither endorses nor identifies a sponsor’s products or services.  

DiMe requires a written agreement with the donor, which reflects the purpose (or unrestricted use), amount, and the agreed upon acknowledgment of the donation.  

DiMe will provide a complete and timely disclosure of support. Specifically, donors will be listed on the website and a complete accounting of all donations will be provided in the annual report.

DiMe independently determines how to acknowledge the donating organization in a value‐neutral manner so as to not endorse or promote a sponsor’s product or service.

Donations will be utilized in a manner consistent with the strategic plan and mission, and will not alter the processes used by the organization to execute its mission.

As a potential stakeholder, donor organizations may be involved in the tactical execution of the DiMe's activities and projects; however, the scope of involvement will not be impacted by the presence or absence of a donation.

All individuals engaged in fundraising on behalf of DiMe are obligated to avoid real or perceived conflicts of interest, where possible. Where conflicts may exist, they must be disclosed to affected parties. DiMe and all individuals engaged in fundraising on behalf of DiMe reject coercion in all of its forms and are obligated to be honest and realistic in stating all activity claims or estimates.

In addition, DiMe adheres to external rules and guidance related to commercial support including: Internal Revenue Service regulations governing organizations classified as federally tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Individuals fundraising on behalf of DiMe will always act with integrity, following legislative and regulatory requirements, and will always work for the best interests of DiMe, and both the professionals and patients we serve.  It is DiMe’s duty and obligation to manage our relationships with external organizations, irrespective of the nature of the relationships responsibly and ethically, while putting the patients first.

These Ethical Principles of Fundraising will be updated regularly, as needed.
