Advancing Professional Fundraising

Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) is the only professional association to exclusively serve the needs and interests of Australia's fundraising professionals. FIA continues to take a lead role in the direction and development of fundraising in Australia and has achieved significant outcomes for the sector and for fundraisers individually. See these in our infographic.

FIA membership reflects and acknowledges your commitment to best practice in your career as a professional fundraiser. As a member you are signatory to the FIA’s Principles and Standards of Fundraising Practice, and therefore uphold the ethical and professional standards of fundraising.

Your individual membership with FIA:

  • Demonstrates ethical fundraising practice
  • Signifies you as a professional fundraiser
  • Provides opportunities for professional development

Your organisational membership with FIA:

  • Demonstrates your leadership in the not-for-profit sector
  • Signifies to your donors and stakeholders your commitment to ethical fundraising practices
  • Indicates your commitment to raising the professional/public recognition of fundraising.


FIA's membership year mirrors the financial year, running from 1 July to 30 June. Memberships are for this set period and are not renewed on the anniversary of your joining date.
