The number of charities subscribing to the Good Fundraising Code has hit three figures.  

More than 120 organisations have signed up to the Practical Fundraising Association's four-point code of practice since its launch in February, the organisation has reported.

The PFA launched the free code, with an accompanying ‘thumbs-up' logo, to provide an alternative form of accreditation to the Fundraising Standards Board's fee-based membership scheme.

Gareth Edwards, co-founder of the PFA, said: "So many causes found it objectionable to have to pay a fee to appear worthy in their donors' eyes, and the Good Fundraising Code has tapped into this."

Edwards said he hoped the membership of the code would grow by at least 50 a month and would eventually top 1,000.  

A forum to discuss the code's principles, best practice and complaints procedures will also be launched on the PFA's site this month.
