How will you benefit from membership?
It has never been more important to be able to show employers that you take your role in fundraising seriously and that you want to advance in your career. Individual IoF membership demonstrates your commitment and can help you in so many other ways.
These are some of the many benefits:
- We can help with your professional and personal development through the IoF Academy: members receive discounts on all IoF training and qualifications.
- You will receive a free monthly copy of Fundraising magazine together with full, unlimited access to the civilsociety.co.uk website (worth £132 a year).
- We will send you priority booking and discounted invitations to National Convention and IoF Conferences where you will learn from first-class speakers.
- You can build up an excellent network of contacts and fellow fundraising professionals through our network of National, Regional and Special Interest Groups.
- We will provide guidance and online support via dedicated email for your questions relating to the Code of Fundraising Practice.
- You can get cash-back at major high street stores and supermarkets; discounts on days out; airport parking, UK hotels; holidays and much more through IoF Privilege.
- We offer you a 50% reduction (£40 instead of £80) on cross-posting your vacancies in the IoF Job Shop (when you advertise on CharityJob.co.uk).
- You will receive free, monthly e-news bulletins keeping you up to date with fundraising issues and developments.
- Individual members have the opportunity to vote in the Partners in Fundraising Awards 2015
- We offer support with any tax related enquiries you may have, via email with our information partners Saffery Champness, when quoting your membership number (Members in Scotland can find out about law and tax queries here).
- And last, but not least – if you pay your own subscription, you should be able to claim back 20% to 40% of the cost through tax relief. Just check out the relevant information on the HMRC website once you’ve joined.
Whether you are relatively new to fundraising, have several years’ experience, or want to gain professional qualifications – and demonstrate this through your membership grade – IoF membership is right for you. Take a look at our different membership grades.
