FIA Membership

The Benchmark for Fundraising Excellence

Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) membership is the benchmark to fundraising success. We provide support to professional fundraisers as well as protect and promote the sector. We want Australia’s fundraisers to be equipped with best-practice fundraising knowledge to ensure they can fulfill their organisation’s mission and enable greater impact overall.

Working for you and the sector

As a peak body and not-for-profit organisation, we exist solely for the benefit of our Members. Revenue from membership fees is invested straight back into the Association to protect and grow the fundraising sector, develop a strong professional identity for the fundraising workforce, and advance best- practice fundraising both now and in the future.

Changes to FIA Membership

Thanks to Member feedback and new initiatives, we initiated significant changes to the membership model last year.  FIA Professional Members now have exclusive use of the Member suffix which shows their commitment to professional fundraising. The fees for Professional Members were significantly reduced when the employing organisation is a current FIA Organisational Member making it more accessible to many fundraisers.

One of the key improvements was enabling Organisational memberships to register their entire fundraising teams to access Member benefits. FIA now directly communicates with over 2200 staff from across 650 organisations providing critical sector updates, resources, event information and discounts to FIA activities. At any time Members can request a link to their specific online form to update or add staff to receive benefits.

FIA membership is annual and runs from 1 July to 30 June each year but anyone is welcome to join at any time within this period.
