Our chartered journey

We have launched a consultation with our members and with the Privy Council in relation to the Institute becoming the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.

Our Board of Trustees have agreed a draft set of new constitutional documents (Charter, Bye-Laws and Regulations) which we will consult on before taking a final version for agreement by our members at our AGM in July. If the consultation goes smoothly, and our members approve the move to become a chartered body, we plan to make our formal petition to the Privy Council in July and would hope to hear their decision before the end of this calendar year.

This is a really important step for the Institute and the fundraising community, embedding professional standards at the heart of the fundraising community, and securing external recognition for the important role fundraisers play in today‚Äôs society raising vital funds to make the world a better place.
