Organisational Member benefits

The Institute of Fundraising is here to create a better environment for fundraisers to excel.

A voice for fundraisers…

Our Organisational members sign up to support the Code of Fundraising Practice, and we work closely with the Fundraising Regulator to ensure the views of fundraisers are strongly represented.

For our members we:

  • Regularly engage with Government, civil servants, and decision makers to ensure the views of fundraisers are heard
  • Represent the views of fundraisers with the Fundraising Regulator in setting the Code of Fundraising Practice
  • Undertake research and insight to give fundraisers the best information to help them raise standards to increase public trust and confidence in fundraising
  • Work with other sector bodies on relevant issues across the charity sector to achieve positive change


Celebrate and Champion Excellent Fundraising

Through networks and a series of events including Fundraising Convention and the National Fundraising Awards, the Institute promotes and champions excellent fundraising enabling members to share best practice so they may become more effective and raise more for vital causes.

  • Exclusive ‘member rate’ incentive to attend one day conferences (this does not include our regional conferences)
  • Exclusive discounts to attend Fundraising Convention, allowing you to tailor yours and your team's attendance to your organisation's requirements
  • Following the merger with the PFRA we have launched a Compliance Service to help our members comply with the Code of Fundraising Practice

We would encourage charities to join the Institute of Fundraising to visibly demonstrate their commitment to best practice and excellence. The Institute of Fundraising has a vital role to play in ensuring the voice of fundraisers is strongly represented as we develop the rules around fundraising. Working together with the IoF, providing advice and guidance to the fundraising community, we want to ensure that charities are always fundraising to the highest standards.” Stephen Dunmore, CEO, Fundraising Regulator
