At EFA’s Annual General Assembly on 26 November 2020, members voted unanimously to expand EFA’s membership structure to a more inclusive and collaborative model.
Rather than requiring EFA members to be national fundraising associations, the new articles of association specify that any organisation promoting fundraising and philanthropy, developing the profession or industry can now become a member.
The aim of the transition is not only for EFA to become more inclusive and representative, but to meet the need for greater international community and outreach, and to provide more opportunities for exchange and learning across the network.
This follows a busy year where EFA has contributed to a range of EU developments in Brussels, re-launched our Certification scheme, implemented our first multilingual survey project, set up new partnerships, and increased our provision of news and resources for fundraisers.
Eduard Marček, EFA president says:
“This is an exciting moment for EFA. Our Board has played an instrumental role this year in guiding us through a period of change and growth, broadening EFA’s membership, enabling us to be even more inclusive and to open our doors to new members across the European fundraising community.”
“Thank you to all those on the Board who guided us along the way, particularly Gosse Bosma, who reached the end of his term and stepped down last month.”
New board appointments
At the same meeting, EFA members voted in two new board members; Siri Nodland, secretary general of the Norwegian Fundraising Association, and Simona Biancu, vice president of the Italian Fundraising Association (ASSIF).
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Simona and Siri, who bring in further strength and a diverse range of fundraising expertise to the Board.”
