FIA Code Course

Course Overview

FIA members subscribe to a self-regulatory regime that raises the sector’s profile and enhances credibility and reputation with donors, government, and the community. Self-regulation is guided by the FIA Code, which was relaunched in 2017 and informed by the International Statement of Ethical Principles. All members must comply with the Code.

As charities’ reliance on fundraising grows, we need to ensure that the public trusts fundraisers to raise, manage, and distribute their generous gifts ethically and responsibly.

When you join FIA and complete the Code training, you are entitled to use the appropriate FIA Member logo, which signifies that you are committed to adhering to the Code and to ethical, best-practice professional fundraising.

The FIA Code course is designed to provide members (and others involved with fundraising) with a practical understanding of the Code and how to conduct fundraising in accordance with best practices. All FIA Members and anyone involved in fundraising, including staff, CEOs, board members, and volunteers, should complete the Code training.

An independent Code Authority oversees the Code's administration, which includes ongoing monitoring, complaints adjudication, and compliance training.

The Code covers:

  • transparent and ethical behaviour
  • conduct towards and communication with Donors
  • conduct towards and communication with Beneficiaries, including people in vulnerable circumstances
  • professional engagement with Suppliers

The course takes approximately 2 hours to complete and enrolment includes access for 4 weeks from the time of purchase.
