Most people give money to charity from time to time – some give a lot and do it regularly. But every time you give, you want to feel confident that you can trust that charity. So how can you give with confidence? By looking for the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) tick logo.
Give with confidence
Charities, voluntary organisations and community groups rely on the generosity of people like you for much of the money that funds their work. That’s why charities will write to you asking you to donate to them. It’s why they:
- Sell Christmas cards;
- Encourage you to leave a legacy in your will;
- Approach you for your support on the street;
- Urge people to run marathons and climb mountains;
- And it’s why they hold balls and coffee mornings.
Look for the tick
They are all working to make a difference – in their communities, all over the country and in other countries too. And they need your help to do it. People in the UK give a lot of money to good causes, nearly £9 billion last year. And because your money is so important, it’s vital you feel you can trust charities when they ask you to give to them. That’s what the FRSB is here to do – to help you give with confidence to your favourite good causes by looking for our tick logo.
