In the next week or so, a publication outlining our pledge to represent the fundraising profession will arrive on your desks. It identifies the challenges UK fundraisers are facing and addresses the ways in which we are supporting the sector in meeting these challenges.
We recognise that our core strength lies in our members - the fundraising community - and are looking to expand the range of benefits for both individuals and organisations. We want to double individual membership and treble organisational membership by 2008.
As part of our wider remit to promote best practice, we will continue to drive up standards and review the Codes of Fundraising Practice.
We are keen to raise awareness of committed giving through initiatives such as the new Payroll Giving Grants programme and our work with the Lifetime Legacies Coalition.
The document outlines our desire to continue influencing and lobbying policy makers about the issues that matter directly to you.
All Institute members will receive a copy of this publication. Other interested parties can email their contact details to email@example.com.
