Institute of Fundraising continues as government strategic partner

The Institute of Fundraising is to be retained as a strategic partner, continuing its work with the Office for Civil Society. The Institute will receive funding of £275,000 to deliver a number of its services, including low cost training for small charities, developing its research capacity, promoting its Codes of Fundraising Practice amongst its membership, and running a programme of local and regional events and focus groups to feed into to Government consultations.
Alan Gosschalk, Acting Chair of the Institute of Fundraising, said: “We are delighted to receive this vote of confidence from Government. The funding we’ve been awarded will mean we’ll work with Government to deliver a Big Society which will meet the needs of charities and the voluntary sector as a whole. The Institute will continue to ensure that the concerns and priorities of charity fundraisers will be resourced and supported, feeding into the highest levels of Government decision making.”
In October 2010 the Office for Civil Society announced that it would reduce the number of its strategic partners from 42 to a maximum of 15.
