Membership is a practical and visible way to demonstrate good organisational governance and reassure the public that their trust in charities is well placed, not taken for granted. The Fundraising Standards Board’s long-awaited public launch will now take place on 12 February 2007.The media campaign will target national and regional press, broadcast and online media across the UK to introduce the giving public to the Board, its remit and purpose. It will aim to make the scheme’s logo visible and highlight to the public what to do if they have a specific fundraising complaint.Some charities, including Farm Africa, Stroke Association, Sense and the Thistle Foundation are already using the scheme’s logo on their fundraising materials. So far 139 charities have signed up, still short of the anticipated 500 the FSB had wanted by the time it launched, but a further 600 have registered their interest.
