EFA’s Vice President, Becky Gilbert, has joined the Certification Committee, responsible for supporting and approving accreditation of fundraising qualifications across Europe. Becky Gilbert replaces Deutscher Fundraising Verband colleague Katja Deckert on the Committee.


EFA Certification is a framework that enables nations to develop qualifications for fundraising based on one core syllabus and a common set of fundraising competencies.

Since launch in 2007, the Certification Board has now supported and approved the creation of 13 fundraising qualifications in Europe.


This news comes as intern Nathan Bodge-Duncan joins the EFA team. Nathan will be working closely with Günther Lutschinger, based at the Fundraising Verband Austria offices.
