Graduates of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) Academy Certificate in Fundraising celebrated their success last week at the annual IoF North West Conference. Three local students from the class of 2012 were congratulated at a special presentation event, by IoF Chair Mark Astarita and course tutor Gill Jolly.
The graduates were part of the second sell out Certificate course which took place in Manchester this year, leading the IoF to plan a third course in the North West starting next April.
Glenys Garth-Thornton, Head of Professional Development at IoF said,
“We are proud to see more and more fundraisers successfully graduating from our qualifications courses, with numbers of students increasing as we roll out further opportunities to enrol across the UK. The North West course has received great acclaim from students and tutors and we are looking forward welcoming the new class in April 2014.”
Since the IoF Academy was launched, over 400 dedicated professionals have successfully completed qualifications in fundraising and/or direct marketing, with a range of new opportunities launching in the coming months including the Masters level Advanced Diploma in Fundraising and a Major Donor residential programme.
