The IoF Technology Special Interest Group is for anyone working in or with charities who has an interest in fundraising and technology.
For us, technology includes (but is not limited to) websites, databases, CRM software, emails, social media and even the humble spreadsheet. This often means we discuss topics such as Gift Aid, data protection, list swapping, data hygiene, social media trends, web development, accessibility and user experience.
There's no entry exam – you don’t have to prove your l33t coding skills or execute database queries while blindfolded. All you need is an interest in how technology is used in the not-for-profit sector.
Our members are typically fundraisers, administrators, webmasters, web editors, database people and IT support staff at charities, as well as a few consultants and commercial suppliers.
Follow this site for more information on the group's activities, to view presentations from recent events and to see how you can get involved in our upcoming schedule of events for 2018.

The Annual Conference of the IoF Technology Group will be on 8th June 2018!
The IoF Technology Group's annual conference is the best-value fundraising technology event around - that's what attendees tell us, and we certainly aim to make it so every year!
We work hard to pull together a line-up of great talks featuring as many real charity case studies as possible. This year, there'll be four streams of relevant content covering payment innovations, CRM, business processes and tech innovations to support effective fundraising (see our event page for full line up).
Many of our speakers either work for a charity, or are seasoned practitioners who have worked with more charities than you or I could shake a stick at. Attendees will come away from the event full of inspiration and practical ideas - and having made beneficial new connections in the sector.
You'll find our prices reasonable, with a special extra discount this year for small charities (income under £1m/year). IoF Members will also receive a discount. All this is made possible by our generous sponsors, who represent some of the greatest technical expertise in the sector, and who will be on hand during the day if you want to pop by their stands for a chat.
Register now to reserve your place for 8th June.
Hope to see you there!
