Unity4 achieves Institute Of Fundraising certification

Unity4 is pleased to announce that it has received communication from The Institute of Fundraising in the U.K. to confirm it has been successful in being certified in line with the IOF’s new regulatory programme. This certification programme is seen to be the next step in supporting high standards in public fundraising and involvement is a clear commitment from many charities and fundraising agencies to go even further to deliver excellent fundraising.

The Certification Programme as carried out, covered charities with in-house fundraising teams and fundraising agencies who work on direct debit door-to-door, street, private site and telephone fundraising and was centred around 3 robust pillars. Firstly, a detailed self-assessment form which assessed our compliance policies and processes. This was followed up by in-depth observations by IOF staff of our training programmes to ensure that excellent training standards were being consistently met. Finally, a mystery shopping programme to check and feedback on whether these processes were being implemented on the front line.

What is most noteworthy is the fact that as of today Unity4 is one of only ten groups who are certified in the telephone fundraising space in the whole of the UK. “This is a testament to our technology, training processes and commitment to raising the standards of fundraising in the UK market”, stated Dan Turner Executive Chairman of Unity4, “it’s something I am sure will be of interest to those public fundraisers trying to achieve best in breed standards.”
