The Muscle Help Foundation (MHF) is delighted to announce that it has become a member of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) self-regulatory scheme. The charity is now signed up to independent fundraising regulation, championing best practice across the UK.

As a member of the FRSB, MHF commits to the highest standards of fundraising and to a set of core principles that include honesty, transparency and accountability.  The give with confidence tick logo (pictured above) displayed on our website provides added reassurance for donors and potential supporters. Should there be any concerns about the way the charity raises funds, a robust complaints process is in place, notifying the FRSB of any issues raised.

Michael McGrath, CEO of MHF said: “The charity joined the FRSB to show our commitment to best practice in all our fundraising efforts. With more and more organisations competing for funds, it is I believe important to provide reassurance to the public about how we go about asking for money to support our cause. Being a member also gives a small charity like ours access to information, advice and support that is invaluable and we would encourage other fundraising organisations to join the FRSB.”

“87% of people say that they would only give to charities they trust and in these especially challenging times for fundraisers it is reassuring to know that 70% of the public said they would trust a charity more if it was an FRSB member.”

“The give with confidence tick is therefore a visible mark of reassurance. Individuals, businesses and funders know they can give to our charity with confidence. It’s our hope that this will translate into more money being given to our cause, ultimately enabling The Muscle Help Foundation deliver more Muscle Dreams in the future.” added McGrath.

More than 1,300 charities and fundraising organisations throughout the UK have now signed up to regulation through the FRSB.  Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) said: “We are pleased to welcome The Muscle Help Foundation as a new member. By signing up to the scheme, the charity has promised to follow the highest standards when asking supporters for money and is championing best practice across the region.”

The FRSB is the independent self-regulatory body for UK fundraising, requiring members to commit to the highest standards of fundraising and encouraging donors to give with confidence.
