The National Fundraising Awards, now in their 28th year, celebrate and recognise the achievements of truly remarkable fundraisers who in extraordinary ways have made the world a better place.

Hosted by the Institute of Fundraising, the awards are a badge of excellence and are the only one of their kind that recognise and reward fundraising best practice in the charity sector. They provide a platform to showcase the hard work, dedication, passion and innovation of fundraisers.

Sponsorship will position you at the forefront of the charity sector. This is a high profile branding and engagement opportunity that will demonstrate your commitment to excellence.
