Our vision, mission and values
Our vision is the establishment, on a global scale, of effective social organisations who have the leadership, management skills, fundraising flair and expertise to effectively and efficiently fulfill their humanitarian goals.
IFC’s global mission is to enable that vision by providing social organisations worldwide and appropriate government or commercial agents, with a first class professional service in management and fundraising consultancy.
Our country by country mission is to deliver a superb service to our clients.
Codes of practice
We are members of the Association of Fundraising Consultants (AFC), who are registered with the Fundraising Regulator, and are signed up to their codes of conduct. More details can be found here: afc.org.uk/why-engage-a-member-of-the-afc/
We are also members of the Institute of Fundraising UK and EUConsult and abide by all their standards of best practice as well as those of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) and the Association of Professional Fundraisers (APF). And of course, we follow the law relating to fundraising within the Charities Acts

We’re not able to offer free consultancy to any organisation, but our fees are always fair and reasonable. We can charge based on individual projects, or on a monthly retainer. We can also quote a daily or monthly rate, based on the length of the contract. We don’t work on commission.
We may charge expenses, at cost, for travel, food and accommodation.
Explore our learning resources
We offer a free fundraising ‘how to’ resource at wikifund.info. This wiki covers issues that are important to all non-profit organisations, from fundraising techniques to governance and database management. It also explores important topics such as the ethics of fundraising.
We also offer a large bookstore, with a catalogue of books that’s easy to search. The store is linked to Amazon, which means you can buy the books online.
The IFC is not currently seeking any staff.
