IoF launches #proudfundraiser campaign

| 28th May 14

The Institute of Fundraising (IoF) has launched a new campaign, Proud to be a fundraiser, which will promote and celebrate the vital work fundraisers do.

The campaign, supported by Revolutionise Clayton Burnett, will be a key part of the IoF’s National Convention where a Proud to be a fundraiser toolkit will be launched.

It has been developed to enable organisations to plan for the future, putting excellent fundraising at the heart of what they do to help them best achieve their mission. The campaign will be celebrating the work of IoF members and the wider fundraising community, as well as demonstrating the positive role that fundraising plays through encouraging volunteering and creating long-lasting relationships with supporters and donors.

The campaign is supported on social media with people sharing why they are proud of fundraising using the hashtag #proudfundraiser.

Peter Lewis, Chief Executive of the IoF said: “This is a really exciting campaign for us which gets to the heart of what the Institute of Fundraising is all about. Fundraisers do a fantastic job connecting people to causes they care about, securing vital income for important causes here and abroad. I am immensely proud of the work that they do. ‘Proud to be a fundraiser’ gives us a great platform for celebrating their hard work, passion, and successes across the voluntary sector and promoting excellent fundraising to colleagues, Chief Executives and trustees as well as politicians, the media and the public.”
