BURSARIES

EVERYONE BELONGS AT FUNDRAISING CONVENTION

The Institute of Fundraising understands that attending Fundraising Convention is a big investment that may not be affordable for everyone. We are committed to making the event as accessible as possible and we are delighted to offer a number of bursary opportunities each year.

The Diversity Access Fund

Last year, thanks to donations from the fundraising community, we awarded bursaries to 23 people who would have otherwise been unable to attend and contribute to Fundraising Convention.

This year we want even more people from diverse backgrounds to attend Fundraising Convention and aim to award 50 bursaries covering travel, accommodation and attendance costs.

We have launched a fundraising appeal to make this ambition a reality and are looking to raise £10,000 to support the drive towards diversity and inclusion, enabling more people from diverse backgrounds to attend Fundraising Convention.

If, like us, you believe that Fundraising Convention should be a place for everyone please donate what you can today.
