The Institute of Fundraising (IoF) is a registered charity founded in 1983,and is the professional membership body for UK fundraising. The IoF's mission is to support fundraisers, through leadership, representation, standards-setting and education, to deliver excellent fundraising.


The IoF was originally designated 'The Institute of Charity Fundraising Managers', changing its name in 2002 to reflect the growing profession. The IoF now has more than 5,000 Individual members (fundraisers), 300 Organisational members (charities), and 50 Corporate members (businesses that work with charities).

The Institute provides Codes of Fundraising Practice for each form of fundraising (downloadable from their website) and a Code of Conduct by which all members are expected to abide.

In 2011, The Institute of Fundraising launched the IoF Academy which offers training and qualifications to fundraisers at every stage in their career. The Certificate in Fundraising, once completed allows members to use the post nominals MinstF(Cert) and upon completion of the Diploma in Fundraising, members can use the post nominals MinstF(Dip).

The abbreviation which is used to denote a Fellow of the Institute of Fundraising is FInstF. Fellows include: Michael Brophy (the founder of CAF),[3] Valerie Morton, Isobel Michael, Mike Caudrey and Professor Adrian Sargeant.
