AFC's mission is to be the professional association that sets standards in fundraising consultancy in the UK in order to safeguard the interests of not-for-profit organisations their donors and beneficiaries.
AFC 2016 Forum - The new regulatory era for fundraising and its implications for consultancy.
Fundraising is in the spotlight and charities are facing unprecedented challenges. The regulatory environment is changing at breakneck speed.
Established in 1990 by fundraising consultants who recognised the need to provide a European professional standard, AFC membership has become a hallmark for best practice within the not-for-profit sector.
Committed to advancing philanthropic endeavour, AFC members also subscribe to a rigorous code of practice. Members are subjected to regular client reference checks.
Members have the benefit of drawing on an international perspective and shared experience of the fundraising profession.
AFC member firms serve clients of every size and purpose within the not-for-profit sector. With a wealth of experience in raising hundreds of millions of pounds, our members represent the most respected and qualified consultants available.
AFC is a unique professional association that safeguards the interests of:

All our consultants sign up to the AFC Code of Practice which is:

Amongst AFC members, there is a collegial willingness to share experiences and to discuss important professional issues. Members benefit from the resulting continual professional development, and AFC clients benefit from the high standards of professionalism derived from this mutual support
With our strong emphasis on ethics and standards, the AFC insists on high membership criteria. We attract experienced firms and consultants who understand the essential benefits of putting the interests of others first.
Full membership is only open to firms trading for at least 2 years, whose Principals have been full time fundraising consultants for 5 years and who can supply 4 separate client references.
Each senior consultant will have worked with a wide range of client organisations, in many cases internationally as well. AFC consultants therefore offer a very wide pool of experience gained from exposure to many different situations which is of enormous benefit to clients.
