Institute welcomes launch of new fundraising promise - Thursday 12 October 2006

The Institute of Fundraising (‘Institute’) welcomes the new Fundraising Promise and is urging fundraising organisations to sign up to the Fundraising Standard Board’s self-regulatory scheme for fundraising prior to its public launch in the New Year.

Lindsay Boswell, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, says: “Government has made no secret that, should this scheme fail, regulation will be thrust upon the sector. We have lobbied hard for self-regulation and its implementation is a vital opportunity to grow public trust and confidence in charities and to raise awareness of the high standards of UK fundraising. But, we have just one shot at making it work and this is it.”
