Scottish Fundraising Awards 2017 Shortlist


Scottish Fundraising Awards 2017 Shortlist

Awards Shortlist

Over the summer, nominations have been sought for the Institute of Fundraising 2017 Scottish fundraising awards and today, with great delight, the shortlisted finalists are announced.

The awards presented with headline sponsor BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are free to enter and present the opportunity to recognise Scotland’s best fundraisers and honour their success.

Speaking at the announcement of the finalists, Gary Kernahan, chair of the Scottish Conference Committee, said: “It is important that we celebrate and recognise the very best of fundraising. All across Scotland we have charities providing vital services that so many people are dependent on; services that can only be provided because of the funds people work so hard to raise.”
