EFA Certification recognises professional fundraising training of the highest standard.
Fundraising training programmes must meet the requirements set out in thecommon competency framework and syllabus, and be delivered in accordance with EFA guidelines, in order to achieve classification as an EFA Certified qualification.
"A common European qualification is a key move in ensuring consistency of fundraising standards across Europe", says Becky Gilbert of the German Fundraising Association (DFRV).
"Fundraising is increasingly visible on a global scale and common standards are essential to improve public understanding of the professional way that charities operate. There is an additional benefit to the industry in that this provides a fully portable qualification throughout Europe.”
