The Code and Self-Regulation of Fundraising
The principle of self-regulation is to allow individuals and fundraisingorganisations to demonstrate best practice, eliminate poor practice and increasepublic trust and confidence in the voluntary and community sector.There are two key parts to self-regulation. Firstly, the Code of FundraisingPractice contains the standards that the fundraising community sets through thework of the Institute of Fundraising’s Standards Committee, as well as offeringlegal guidance in key areas.Secondly, the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) acts as an independent publiccomplaints system for the self-regulatory scheme, licensing the scheme’s logo toits members and offering a system of redress for the public. Members of theFRSB scheme are required to adhere to the Code of Fundraising Practice andthe Fundraising Promise.The Institute of Fundraising encourages all fundraising organisations to jointhe FRSB.
