The Institute of Fundraising has announced the shortlist for the National Fundraising Awards 2018, featuring excellent fundraising from charities, agencies and individual fundraisers.
The awards were selected from entries by a range of experienced fundraisers and charity leaders. They recognised a mixture of outstanding achievements, inspiring stories of dedication and success against the odds, and some particularly effective collaborative working between charities, agencies and corporate partners.
The winners of the National Fundraising Awards will be announced on 2 July 2018 at The Brewery, London.
