Welcome to the Institute of Fundraising Yorkshire website


The Institute of Fundraising is the professional membership body for UK fundraising. Our mission is to support fundraisers, through leadership, representation, standards-setting and education, and we champion and promote fundraising as a career choice.

This site is for booking your place on Yorkshire regional events (which can be done below). For more information on the IoF, visit the website.

S0, the 2017 two day annual IoF Yorkshire Conference is now concluded. It once again was a fantastic event – our eighth year – and was only made possible because of our generous sponsors, great speakers and fabulous delegates willing to join in and participate in all learnings and networking opportunities we were able to provide for them.

A huge huge thank you to Harlequin Software, Making a Difference Locally, Eden Brown, Roma Fundraising, Wrigleys and Impulse Decisions for sponsoring this event. Thank you to Think Consulting for providing goodies for the delegate bags. Thank you to The Queens Hotel for making us so incredibly welcome and for looking after the whole conference so well, in this our first year with them. And thank you to you, our delegates for participating. We very much hope to see you all at our forthcoming training events throughout the year. And of course to see you at the annual conference in 2018! See you next year :)

The Institute of Fundraising is the largest individual representative body in the voluntary sector with over 6,000 Individual members and 400 Organisational members.

We aim to support these members and the wider fundraising community by:
– Creating a better environment for fundraisers to raise money
– Increasing understanding of fundraising
– Enabling fundraisers to be the best they can be

We improve the environment for fundraisers through policy and support. We increase understanding by being a knowledge centre for fundraisers and the general public and through setting fundraising standards. We enable fundraisers to be the best they can be by providing resources, skills development and qualifications.

We’re delighted our 2017/18 training programme is being sponsored by charity recruitment specialists, Eden Brown. To find out what’s coming up, and to book your place, visit the training page.
