Charity Finance Group offers £5k prize for excellence in charity finance

Charity Finance Group has launched the 2015 Adrian Randall Challenge Prize, offering a £5,000 prize for excellence in charity finance.

The award aims to share, encourage and inspire financial leadership in charities. It recognises a charity finance professional who has been particularly successful, ideally delivering projects or implementing ideas that can be replicated in other charities. For example these could involve:

• responding to changes within an organisation in an innovative way, or establishing a way of communicating changes that has been particularly effective

• adapting processes or ways of working to meet new challenges

• supporting staff to understand developments, or implementing something new to improve finance processes within an organisation

• embedding the finance function at the heart of an organisation’s strategy, by developing processes to improve partnerships with other teams such as fundraising

The winner will receive a grant of £5,000 to develop further their work as a charity finance professional.


Adrian Randall

The prize was established in memory of Adrian Randall, a founding member of the Charity Finance Group, who died in 2012.

Nominations for the 2015 Adrian Randall Challenge Prize close on 30 October 2015.
