Help us shape fundraising standards in Scotland
The Institute of Fundraising in Scotland is looking to recruit new members to join our Standards Advisory Board for Scotland.
This new group is being launched by IoF Scotland following the establishment of the new Independent Fundraising Standards and Adjudication Panel (IFSAP) for Scotland, chaired by Alison Elliot, and will play a key role in helping us shape how we effectively advocate for fundraisers in the devolved context. We will be bringing together some of the best brains in fundraising in Scotland as new regulatory systems across the UK start impacting on how we raise funds for our beneficiaries and causes.
With formal agreements in place around how we work with the Fundraising Regulator, which sets the Code of Fundraising Practice, we are also very much looking forward to engaging our members in the journey onwards within the new system of self-regulation in Scotland, particularly with IFSAP.
So if you’re interested in helping the IoF shape how standards are developed and have the experience and an interest in helping us drive forward this agenda, do please consider putting your name forward. This new committee must be reflective of the fundraising community. We would welcome applications from a diverse range of candidates, particularly from individuals with experience and understanding of the range of regulatory, compliance and best practice issues that impact fundraisers and fundraising organisations; and reflecting the diverse range of organisations fundraising in Scotland.

The Independent Fundraising Standards and Adjudication Panel (IFSAP) is hosting three consultation events relating to the proposed changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice, in order to gauge the views of fundraisers in Scotland. These events will be held in partnership with IoF Scotland, OSCR, the Fundraising Regulator and SCVO. They kick off in Dundee on 24th March, followed by Edinburgh on 29th March and in Glasgow on 31st March.
These events will not only be an essential way of engaging with Scotland’s charity sector, but the views expressed will be vital to forming how the Institute itself responds to the Code consultation. Register here to take part.
