Welcome to EFA
The European Fundraising Association is a network of national fundraising organisations, working to strengthen and develop fundraising across Europe. Together we represent the European fundraising community with one voice, one collective body and one shared goal of facilitating better fundraising.
We certify national fundraising qualifications and support their development, and, through our public affairs work, represent the European fundraising community on legal and regulatory matters at an EU level. We also deliver inspiring networking events, share best practice and publish news and views from across the continent in our newsletter, Fundraising Europe.
EFA's membership draws together fundraising associations and bodies from 19 European countries. Through EFA, members can share learning, accelerate best practice in the fundraising profession, develop internationally-recognised fundraising qualifications, access discounts at fellow members’ events and more.
Developed with EU funding, EFA Certification is a framework that enables members to develop national qualifications for fundraising based on core fundraising competencies, with clear delivery guidelines. 2022 saw the Standard Competence Framework updated, and the new Advanced Competence Framework launched.
