We're a voluntary organisation working to support fundraisers from the black, Asian and minoritised ethnic (BAME) Community by providing a regular forum to meet, share experiences and access professional support.
Founded in 2006 by black professionals with a common vision and over 30 years of fundraising experience, we're a unique network that is fast establishing its place in the fundraising sector by listening to BAME fundraisers and responding with practical and effective support. As BAME fundraisers, we understand feelings of isolation and solitude on this chosen career path. Black Fundraisers UK provides a welcome meeting arena and support structure to make these feelings a thing of the past.
Black Fundraisers UK promotes professionalism, integrity and personal development. If these qualities resonate with you, we welcome you to join us.
Our aims as a group are:
Our vision is that every black fundraiser has the skills and the expertise to become a leader within their given sector.
Our mission is to ensure black fundraisers have access to appropriate and professional support and that black community organisations have access to professional fundraising expertise.
