Fundraising Convention 2019

Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd July 2019 at the Barbican in London

The Institute of Fundraising's Fundraising Convention is the largest event for professional fundraisers in Europe. Taking place over three days in July, the event brings together a mix of experience from the charity sector, and engages attendees through multiple sessions per day, within broad themes.

Who we are  


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.

We have over 6,000 Individual Members, who get access to professional and personal development, networking opportunities, training, support and advice. We also offer Organisational Membership to charitable organisations and Corporate Membership to companies that supply products or services to the not-for-profit sector.

We offer a wide range of fundraising training courses, suitable for both new fundraisers and fundraisers with years of experience. We also offer fundraising qualifications, enabling fundraisers to gain professional recognition for their knowledge, work and experience.

We run a programme of one day conferences and half day events throughout the year which focus on innovation and best practice across a variety of fundraising techniques. Our flagship event, Fundraising Convention, takes place in July each year and is attended by over 2,500 fundraisers.

We provide legal and best practice guidance on a wide range of fundraising techniques.
