We're celebrating the great work of our small charity members
Small Charity week is about celebrating the work of small charities, and at the IoF we’re proud of our small charity members and the excellent fundraising they do. Just take a look at the IoF Awards nominees for great examples of small charity fundraising.
However, too many charities report that they lack the skills needed to effectively raise the funds they need to sustain their vital work. At the IoF, we have been working to get the voice of small charities heard and their priorities recognised.
Last year, we released a report ‘Small Charity Fundraising Support’ and hosted a Summit with DCMS to discuss ways for the sector as a whole to further support smaller fundraising organisations. Since then, we’ve been working with our small charity members and will continue to champion their work!
Check out our Small Charity Week blogs:
- Small charities must harness the support available in the sector, says Rosario Bellolio. Read about the IoF’s new arts, culture and heritage programme.

Meet your local IoF Regional Group. Whether you’re fundraising in a community in Kent or for a church in Yorkshire, small charities can find a group to suit them. Join your local regional group of fundraisers for networking opportunities and insight from those in your sector – plus a monthly IoF Thursday event to get to know your sector colleagues.
We also regularly engage with Government to make the views of the fundraising sector is represented – members can make their voice heard through regular consultations.
