FIA Membership

A Commitment to Fundraising Excellence

Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) membership shows a commitment to to best practice fundraising. 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.  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.  In addition Professional Member exclusive events and professional development sessions are provided to connect this group of fundraisers.

Another key improvement was enabling Organisational memberships to register their entire fundraising teams to access Member benefits. FIA now directly communicates with over 680 organisations providing critical sector updates, resources, event information and discounts to FIA activities. At any time Members can request a link to automatically add staff to receive benefits.

FIA membership is annual and runs from 1 July to 30 June each year however we welcome new members at any time within this period.
