Why should I be part of FIA?

At FIA, we are passionate about supporting you, and your organisation, to achieve best practice fundraising.

We do this by:

  • Consulting with government, influencers and the community to set best practice standards and advance professional fundraising for all of us
  • Developing and maintaining a self-regulatory regime and our Code, and lobbying for a reduction in the red tape burden our sector faces
  • Delivering professional development that gives you and your organisation the tools, processes, training and sector updates you need for best-practice fundraising
  • Providing comprehensive resources to support your professional fundraising journey.

In the past two years, FIA has been the one unifying voice of our sector, the first responders to the most challenging impacts of disruption: the proposal to eliminate cheques as a form of payment for donations; mitigating the effects of the new Facebook fundraising tools; continuing to advocate for exemptions to the Do Not Call register; lobbying for harmonisation of state-based fundraising regulation to reduce red tape. These are only a few of the issues that FIA has championed and continues to champion.
