Membership grades

When you join the Institute of Fundraising, you become part of a community of over 6,000 fellow professionals committed to abiding by the IoF Code of Conduct

You can join IoF at Associate or Full (MInstF) grade depending on your experience:

Associate membership

Associate membership is right for you if you have less than five years’ experience in fundraising. You simply need to register or log in to the IoF website and complete the application, giving us details of a referee to confirm their belief that you will abide by the IoF Code of Conduct.

  •  The annual subscription for Associate grade is £101.

  •  If you pay by direct debit, this is all you will pay - ie: we waive the £25 joining fee. And you can pay your subscription monthly (£8.42) or quarterly (£25.25) if your prefer.

  •  Or if you choose to pay by another method, you will pay £126 for your first year of membership, which is the £101 subscription plus the £25 joining fee.

    Your membership year will begin once we receive both your reference and payment.

Full membership

Full (MInstF)membership is the grade to choose if you have more than five years’ proven experience in fundraising. You will need to send us a CV/work history when you apply, and give us details of a referee who will be asked to support your work history and confirm that you will abide by the IoF Code of Conduct(we may need a second referee to cover the five years, but we'll get back to you if this is the case).

  •  The annual subscription for Full - MInstF grade is £111.

  •  If you pay by direct debit, this is all you will pay - ie: we waive the £25 joining fee. And you can pay your subscription monthly (£9.25) or quarterly (£27.25) if you prefer.
