Fundraising Standards Board

The Fundraising Standards Board is a not-for-profit organisation that runs the UK's self-regulatory scheme for fundraising. They work with charities and suppliers to build commitment to best practice in fundraising.

Book Aid for Africa is a member of the FRSB as we believe that they provide us with the support we need to ensure that we (and all members) comply with fundraising best practice. They have a commitment to protecting the public by ensuring that charities are accountable for their fundraising and will deal with any concerns raised by members of the public.

FRSB say ...

Membership of the FRSB shows the charity's or supplier's commitment to these high standards and gives greater confidence in fundraising.

As the regulator of charity fundraising in the UK, we ensure these standards are maintained and improved.

ABOUT THE STANDARDS

The standards are set by the Institute of Fundraising and are published as the Code of Fundraising Practice.

BENEFITS FOR CHARITIES AND SUPPLIERS

By maintaining high standards, charities and suppliers protect their supporters and maintain and increase income streams.

Three-fifths of the public said they would be more likely to give to an FRSB scheme member and 41% would donate more.*

BENEFITS FOR DONORS

The standards help donors by ensuring the charities you support are fundraising in the right way. Check out the standards below.

You can also use the Fundraising Promise to check that the charity or supplier is doing all that they have promised to do when raising money.

THE CODE OF PRACTICE

Members (including BAFA) follow an industry code: the Institute of Fundraising's Code of Fundraising Practice. It sets out the standards our members are required to follow when raising money.

The code contains sections on each of the most popular fundraising techniques and provides guidance and legal advice. All members follow the code for the fundraising methods they use.

BAFA are proud to be members of FRSB
