Charity Governance Code seeks donations from the sector 

02 May 2018 News

The Charity Governance Code steering group has written to professional advisers to the sector asking for donations to ensure its sustainability. 

A letter has been sent to law and accountancy firms as well as governance consultants working in the sector inviting them to “to support its long-term sustainability”. 

“To date, the code has been developed and maintained without any government funding and without charging a license fee. We would like to keep it this way to ensure its independence and relevance to the entire charity sector,” the letter said.

There’s also a page on the code’s website encouraging people to support the code.

Donations will be held by NCVO in a reserve fund to support the work of the code steering group.  

The code was launched last year and was overseen by a steering group of charity umbrella bodies comprised of the Association of Chairs; Acevo; ICSA: The Governance Institute; NCVO; the Small Charities Coalition; and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action, and with an independent chair, Rosie Chapman.

It has been endorsed by the Charity Commission and is being used by a range of professionals in the sector as part of their governance training programmes or to assist them when carrying out governance reviews for charities.
