As part of the association’s wider plans to become a stronger representative body for fundraising and civil society in Sweden, Giva Sverige was chosen as a shorter and more relevant name than its full former title (Frivilligorganisationernas insamlingsråd), assigned at its foundation in 1991.
“With these changes we are ready to move ahead and become more vocal about the need for a better environment for fundraising and giving in Sweden, and how that can strengthen civil society,” says Charlotte Rydh, Secretary General.
Giva Sverige currently has 158 organisational members, which represent 14,000 employees and 58,000 volunteers. Total fundraising income from individuals, corporates and organisations in Sweden for 2018 reached 8,76 billion SEK.
The association’s plans also include the introduction of an associate membership for small charities as well as for institutions that fundraise but are not formally a non-profit, and to create a Code of Quality that will encompass ethical and governance requirements for the sector under one umbrella.
