Since 1996, the CBF (Central Bureau for Fundraising) accreditation has been a hallmark for fundraising institutions. The label claims responsible fundraising and spending by non-profit organisations. Any fundraising institution eligible for a CBF accreditation must meet the same criteria and follow the same procedures. It is issued for a period of 3 years, with yearly tests of whether the organisation still meets the set criteria.
The criteria relate to the following topics:
- fund-raising, information and communication
- allocation of resources
- complaints procedure
