Bursaries

The Institute of Fundraising understands that attending Convention is a big investment, that may not be affordable for all charities. However, we are committed to making Convention as accessible as possible and we are delighted that the following bursaries are currently available for the event.

Bursary applications (for the Diversity Access Fund and RAISE programme) are now closed. 


Thank you to our Access Fund supporters

The Institute of Fundraising has set up a Diversity Access Fund to ensure that Fundraising Convention is a place for everyone. The Access Fund is ensuring that more BAME, disabled and LGBT+ fundraisers are able to attend Fundraising Convention this year. We would like to thank our generous corporate and individual supporters for supporting the Diversity Access Fund.


Thank you to...

Diversity Access Fund

Increasing the diversity of the fundraising profession is a key priority for the IoF. We have launched our first Access Fund, to enable a wider diversity of fundraisers to attend Convention.

Are you a fundraiser who self-identifies as from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background, as LGBT+ or as disabled?

Applications are now closed!


Everyone belongs at Convention - support the fund

Fundraising Convention should be a place for everyone, so the Institute of Fundraising Diversity Access Fund has been set up to support attendance by BAME, disabled and LGBT+ fundraisers. The fund will pay for fundraisers from across the UK to attend Convention - covering the cost of their tickets, travel and accommodation. 

Contribute to our Diversity Fund


RAISE: Arts, Culture & Heritage
