Give With ConfidenceGive with Confidence is a self-regulation scheme for charities that are registered and raise funds in the UK. It is run by the Fundraising Standards Board and aims to protect donors and encourage best practice in fundraising.
There are 180,000 charities in England and Wales, but only 1,547 have so far signed up to the scheme. Director Chris Bale explains why we were one of the first to join.
‘We're still quite a small charity, not a household name, and so it's very important for people to feel they can give to us with confidence. Signing up to the scheme means that we're committing to be honest, respectful and accountable to our donors, and if they feel we don't live up to that commitment we have a clear complaints procedure that they can follow.'
