Why join?

CFG is the charity that champions best practice in finance management in the charity sector.

CFG members have access to a wide range of information, resources, and opportunities to share knowledge with other charity finance professionals.

Membership allows you to:

  • Reclaim the cost of your membership in one job ad. Save up to £1,535 on recruitment advertising and free treasurer/trustee recruitment advertising;
  • Attend exclusive members' meetings in London, North, Midlands and South West & Wales;
  • Access CFG’s members-only online document library, containing over 400 documents from leading sector experts on current and emerging issues;
  • Engage with your peers;
  • Hear from experts who are at the forefront of charity finance management and leadership;
  • Develop your skills and maintain your continuing professional development requirements;
  • Receive regular updates and stay informed about the latest policies and issues facing the sector;
  • Attend issue-specific forums and sign up to special interest groups;
  • Contribute to debates and share challenges which we can then feedback to government and policy makers on your behalf. 

Once your organisation is registered for CFG membership, any staff in the organisation who wish to do so can sign up to access member benefits.

Becoming a member of CFG is an excellent way for your charity to access support and development and can reduce your charity’s spend on skills development and training.

More than 1350 charities are members of CFG. These organisations collectively manage over £21.1 billion (almost one third of the sector’s income).

CFG is therefore uniquely placed to influence and inform government about the main issues impacting on charities, drive efficiency and help charities to make the most of their money.
