Membership Upgrade

Following the introduction of the four tiered framework of fundraising qualifications in January 2011: the Introductory Certificate in Fundraising, Certificate in Fundraising, Diploma in Fundraising and an Advanced Diploma in Fundraising (available from 2013) a number of members upgraded their level of membership through the successful completion of a CPD log. However, the last of four deadlines to upgrade membership has now passed. Those that successfully submitted their CPD logs will have received notification of their upgrade via a Certificate of CPD Completion.

If you are a student of Sheffield Hallam, CASS, LSBU or the Open University it may be possible for the IoF Academy to accredit your qualification which can lead to an upgrade in your membership. Please email a scanned electronic copy of your pass result to and the team will reply to advise you of next steps.

Where an upgrade is applicable you can complete your CPD log here. Following submission the upgrade may take up to 8 weeks to administer. If further evidence is required the IoF Professional Development team will ask the individual to provide relevant information where applicable.
