Charlotte Rydh of the Swedish Fundraising Council (FRII) has been appointed to EFA’s certification committee. The committee is responsible for assessing and certifying national fundraising qualifications in Europe. Over 4,570 fundraisers in 13 nations now hold an EFA certified qualification.
Joining the committee last month, Charlotte Rydh, Secretary General of FRII, said:
“We cannot underestimate the importance of academic courses and training for fundraisers to both improve and aid recognition of the profession. EFA Certification – a pan-European qualification – is an important tool to achieve coherence and consistency across national boundaries.”
EFA Certification is a framework for the development of national qualifications for fundraising, all based on one core syllabus and a set of fundraising competencies. Once approved by EFA’s certification committee, qualifications are accredited and recognised internationally.
Currently, fundraising qualifications are available in 10 European nations; Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Other members of the Certification Committee include Andrea Caracciolo di Feroleto of ASSIF (Chair), Glenys Garth-Thornton at the Institute of Fundraising, Becky Gilbert, at Deutscher Fundraising Verband, Pia Tornikoski at VaLa – Finnish Fundraising Association, Dr Johan Vamsta at Ersta Sköndal University College and Dr Pamala Wiepking at the Rotterdam School of Management.
