The European Fundraising Association held a second Symposium to review EFA Certification earlier this month, gathering national associations, educational providers and experts in fundraising education to discuss future developments to the scheme. EFA Certification is a framework that enables members to develop national qualifications for fundraising, strengthening fundraising education across Europe.
It is anticipated that the accreditation scheme will be upgraded in 2020 to reflect growth and change in the fundraising industry in recent years.
Commenting, Charlotte Rydh, chair of EFA’s Certification Committee and CEO of the Swedish Fundraising Association Giva Sverige said:
“Through EFA’s certification scheme, we’ve helped to develop professional fundraising qualifications in 11 nations, which have been completed by over 5,000 European fundraisers.
“But fundraising is an innovative and dynamic field. Now more than ten years old, we’re keen to update the certification framework so that it better reflects the realities of fundraising today; the technological advances, trends, challenges and regulatory changes seen in recent years.”
At the Symposium, attendees discussed the proposal for a revised Certification Framework, sharing learnings from the current fundraising education programmes and reviewing results from studies on the characteristics of fundraisers in Britain and Italy from Dr Beth Breeze, director of the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent.
