Whether you’re interested in developing your fundraising career, expanding your networks, or discovering the latest ideas and trends the IoF can support you on your journey.

Associate Membership

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

Full Membership (MInstF)

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 confirm your experience and their belief that you will abide by the IoF Code of Conduct (you may need a second referee to cover the five years, but we'll get back to you if this is the case).
