Only individual fundraising practitioners can become members of SAIF. Membership belongs to you personally and therefore you retain your membership, providing you are in good standing, even if you move from one organisation to another.
Membership provides access to continuing professional development and educational opportunities locally and through SAIF's international connections.
No other fundraising organisation in Southern Africa offers you the professional representation that you get when you join SAIF.
Listed below are major benefits you'll receive when you join the Southern Africa Institute of Fundraising.
The SAIF website www.saifundraising.org.za is the main portal for the flow of information and members are encouraged to visit it regularly to keep informed. A members only gateway is being implemented as soon as possible and will be an important networking and resource tool. In the meantime, regular newsletters and e-mails are sent out to alert members to important news whether legislative, regulatory or informative.
SAIF undertakes research into matters affecting the profession and is regularly approached for advice on matters of employment.
SAIF offers a variety of member discounts negotiated with associated organisations, on behalf of members, that are advised as applicable. Member discounts are offered regularly on fees for courses, meetings and conferences.
When you're ready to join, download our application form online www.saifundraising.org.za or ask for a membership application form available from the SAIF office and become a part of the community of professional fundraisers.
We look forward to receiving your application.
