“I commend all the members of the Fundraising Standards Board for their public commitment to keeping a high standard of fundraising practice.
Fundraising is often the public face of charities and we have a strong tradition of charitable giving in the UK. Charities rely on generous public support to carry out their charitable work and the Fundraising Standards Board enables the public to donate to charities that are a member with confidence .”
The FRSB is the independent self-regulatory body for UK fundraising. We work with our member charities, suppliers and the wider charity sector to encourage commitment to and compliance with best practice in fundraising. We do this to help encourage the public to give with confidence to charity. We also listen to and help resolve complaints from the public about our members fundraising.
We were set up in 2006 after consultation with a wide range of charitable and governmental bodies, and launched to the public in February 2007. After further discussions with other sector bodies, such as the Charity Commission, a Steering Group was set up, led by Simon Hebditch of CAF (Charities Aid Foundation). A proposal and business plan was submitted to the Government and approved. Funding was initially supplied by the then Office of the Third Sector (now the Office for Civil Society) and the Scottish Government. The Chair and Chief Executive of the FRSB were appointed in February 2006.
We are a not for profit company and are registered as a Community Interest Company (No 5842626)
We work with the charity sector in order to increase commitment to best practice in fundraising. We also monitor, listen to and help resolve public complaints about fundraising. We do this so that the sector can increase public confidence in charitable giving.
All our members commit to the highest standards of fundraising and to monitor any related complaints year-on-year. Members are expected to use our visible mark, the tick logo, on all their marketing and fundraising materials. This is the public mark of reassurance; a sign of the charity’s commitment to best practice in all fundraising activities.
