Launched in 2021 the F2F Fundraising Alliance’s vision is for a face-to-face fundraising sector that is values focused, that creates a safe and inclusive space for fundraisers and a fair deal for charities, agencies, and fundraisers alike. Encouraged by ongoing conversations within the sector about industry standards The F2F Alliance was founded with a desire to support charities, fundraising agencies & fundraisers.

It is our belief that this will produce more meaningful outcomes for the many organisations that rely on public support. It is a key aim of the alliance to showcase best practice on a range of subjects covering everything from fundraising standards to business methodology.
