Charity Finance Group

Charity Finance Group is the charity that champions best practice in finance management in the voluntary sector.

Founded in 1987, Charity Finance Group's training and development programmes enable finance managers to give the essential leadership on finance strategy and management that their charities need. With more than 1,350 charities in membership, managing over £21.1 billion, (which represents almost one third of the sector's income), CFG are uniquely placed to challenge regulation which threatens the effective use of charity funds.

The culture of sharing and contributing to the wider sector beyond the individual charities in membership is at the heart of CFG's activities.

Charity Finance Group is active in the policy arena as well as in education and training and provides information and support for members and the wider charity sector on different levels.

CFG work with other organisations, regulators and charities to input charity expertise to the regulatory process, and to develop best practice in charity management. In this quest, CFG is represented on many committees and working parties established by professional bodies and government departments.

CFG members benefit from a variety of services such as a regular magazine, free members' meetings and a lively networking framework. Most importantly members can contribute through CFG to regulatory consultations share knowledge with peers through the electronic CFG document library, and share some of the financial expertise of their organisation with others, for the wider benefit of the charity sector.

Membership of CFG is open to all those that have responsibility for the management of their charity's finances it's your role that matters, not your job title. It's simple to join CFG or to add an extra member from your organisation, all the necessary forms are available for you to download or you can apply online here.
