Introducing the IoF Insight SIG Awards

After several years of successfully developing insight and analysis skills in the charity sector, the SIG is launching an awards scheme to recognise best practice and raise the profile of these increasingly important disciplines in driving fundraising performance.

Entries are now being invited for projects and initiatives in that charity sector that demonstrate the highly effective use of data, analysis and insight for the following categories:

  1. Driving Strategy
  2. Supporter Acquisition
  3. Supporter development and retention
  4. Innovation
  5. Team of the Year
  6. Supplier of the Year

Entry is free and individual submissions must reach us by 30th April 2012 for judging in May.  A prestigious awards ceremony will be held in June 2012.  Further details will be published on the SIG website as they become available.

Please support these inaugural awards – feedback from our members indicates that good case study material is much needed to help raise standards in the sector and inspire individuals to leverage data to improve fundraising results.   Winning will increase your profile, boost morale and prove to your organisation the value your team delivers.

We have designed the entry form so that it is not onerous to complete and whilst we need results information for judging, sensitive information may be marked as such and treat in the strictest confidence within the process.

If you have any queries please email us at liz@insightsig.org or contact Janet on 07740 285 101 or Liz Cook on 0782 57 57 209

We look forward to receiving your entries and wish you the best of luck!

Welcome!

to the new Insight in Fundraising website

Our special interest group, affiliated to the Institute of Fundraising,  is dedicated to furthering the knowledge of Analysts and people who are tasked with analysis functions throughout the Charitable sector.

For a long time it has been apparent that Insight in Fundraising has taken a back seat to the higher profile areas of Fundraising. Yet, also apparent, is the reliance that these functions have on the information that the Analysts are providing.  Sources of information on the techniques, developments, software and skills have been hard to come by, and in some cases non-existent.  So it is the aim of this group to get this information and share it among it’s peers.

By regularly solciting feedback from it’s growing membership, the committee plan and present events that cover a wide range of topics at all levels from on-line analytics to fundraising specific Excel techniques.

Together we believe that we can take Insight in Fundraising forward in both expertise and by raising it up the Fundraising agenda.

I very much hope this website will become a valuable tool, enriched over time by further contributions from practitioners in the industry.
