Support the Code

The Charity Governance Code is authored by a voluntary steering group without dedicated staff resource. The Code has been developed by the sector, for the sector. This set up is unlike any other sector’s governance code and, unlike some other codes, we do not charge for, nor receive a license fee.

We are grateful to Clothworkers Company and Barrow Cadbury Trust for supporting the development of the new Code.

We want the Code to remain relevant, sustainable and freely available for every charity to use. Our aspiration is that all charities are aware of the Code and its value.

To achieve this, we rely on the generosity of our supporters and those who benefit from the Code. We very much welcome donations from organisations and individuals who use the Code and want to contribute to ensuring its take-up, use and success.

The Code steering group has exciting plans to promote use of the Code, monitor impact and to ensure resources exist to help charities implement the practice. We’d encourage regular donations to help support this important work in strengthening the sector’s governance.

To make a donation please email include your name, organisation and the amount you would like to donate.

All donations are made to the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) charity number 225922 and company number 19834. NCVO holds all donations in a reserve fund on behalf of the Governance Code steering group. All funds are used to support the work of the Code steering group.

NCVO is registered with the fundraising regulator.
