  • Charities that are signed up to self regulation commit to following these high standards
  • FRSB members currently display the give with confidence tick logo on fundraising campaigns
  • 60% of the public said they would be more likely to give to a scheme member
  • The new Fundraising Regulator will be launching its own registration scheme later this year
