Black Fundraisers UK

Black Fundraisers UK

 

Black Fundraisers UK is a voluntary organisation working to support fundraisers from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Community by providing a regular forum to meet, share experiences and access professional support. Black Fundraisers UK was founded in 2006 by black professionals with a common vision and over 30 years of fundraising experience.

This unique network is fast establishing its place in the fundraising sector by listening to BAME fundraisers and responding with practical and effective support. As BAME fundraisers, we understand feelings of isolation and solitude on this chosen career path. Black Fundraisers UK provides a welcome meeting arena and support structure to make these feelings a thing of the past.
