We celebrated the success of the 2015-16 Certificate in Fundraising and Diploma in Fundraising qualifications graduates at an evening ceremony, which took place on Thursday 10th November 2016 at Brunei Gallery, SOAS - well done to all our graduates!

Graduation 2017 will be held in Central London in November (venue and date are yet to be confirmed)
On the fifth anniversary of our graduation ceremony it is great to see more fundraisers than ever before gaining an IoF qualification. The success of our graduates is a real testament to the hard work and commitment to professional development that everyone with an IoF qualification displays. The breadth and depth of fundraising knowledge gained through the IoF Academy sets our graduates up for their careers, benefiting the charities they work for and the fundraising community for the years to come." Richard Taylor, Chair of the IoF
As fundraisers we enable and facilitate the transformation of the world and I completed the Certificate in Fundraising so that I could become the best possible fundraiser. It was both humbling to realise how little I knew yet so inspiring to see what is possible. I have already made a lot of the changes that my tutor suggested and the difference to my day to day thinking and approach to fundraising has been enormous and noted by my colleagues.” David Skoppek, Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs
