Don’t miss out on your chance to showcase the best of your charity data and analytics work in this year’s Insight in Fundraising Awards.
The deadline for entries to the sixth annual Insight in Fundraising awards is 5pm on Friday 7 April.
The IoF’s Insight in Fundraising Special Interest Group is calling on all charity data analysts, data teams and insight specialists (in-house or suppliers) to showcase their recent achievements in helping charities reach their fundraising goals by entering the awards.
This year the awards have 10 categories, and are once again free to enter.
Entries are judged on the key criteria of insight, innovation, and impact, and this year, the scope for each category has been widened to enable even more teams to enter. Entrants may submit work into as many categories as they wish.

Entries will be judged in April and the winners announced at a gala dinner at London’s Café de Paris on 7th June.
This year, winners will once again be shortlisted for the IoF National Fundraising Awards’ category Best Use of Insight. This award will be presented at the IoF National Awards gala dinner during the IoF Fundraising Convention in London this July.
Nick Mason, Chair of the of the Institute of Fundraising’s Insight Special Interest Group (SIG) and of UpliftingData, commented: “The use of insight in fundraising has never been more essential than in today’s landscape: playing an ever more important role in helping charities to get their targeting right and meet compliance regulations, and looking to the future, its role can only grow.
“The IoF Insight in Fundraising Awards are a chance to both celebrate the excellent work charities and their partners are doing, and to learn from it, and neither has ever been more vital. I encourage those working in charity data and analytics to take this opportunity to showcase the best of their work and share just what data analysis and insight can achieve.”
Alexandra Ho, Customer Insight Manager at Cancer Research UK, which won last year’s Most Powerful Use of Insight through Research category as well as Highly Commended in the Most Powerful Example of Insight Sharing category, added: “These awards provide a valuable opportunity to share work with others in a sector where sharing successes as well as lessons learnt really makes a difference. They also present the sector with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate its achievements, and the chance for individuals as well as teams to be recognised by the wider fundraising community for them; opportunities well worth seizing.”
