Global Awards

Celebrating excellence, rewarding creativity

Now in its 6th successful year, the Global Awards for Fundraising was the first international awards programme endorsed and supported by national fundraising associations from around the globe.  This award programme sees winners of national fundraising awards compete against one another to be recognised with a Global Award.

The Resource Alliance Global Awards for Fundraising 2015 is bringing together the winners of different countries' national award schemes to compete - the very best against the best, winners against winners. A gala ceremony will take place on 21 October 2015 at the International Fundraising Congress (IFC) 2015 in the Netherlands, where the winners will be announced.

Entries for the Global Awards programme 2015 will be open soon.

How it works

Only winners of national awards (either national fundraising awards programmes or Resource Alliance NGO Awards) are eligible for entry into the Resource Alliance Global Awards for Fundraising. National associations invite their winners to submit an entry to represent their country on the Global Awards stage. Winners can choose to enter one or more categories and shortlisted entrants will be invited to the awards ceremony at the International Fundraising Congress (IFC). Entries will be subject to a selection process whereby they are judged by an independent jury made up of five eminent professionals from around the world.

If you are a fundraising association interested in getting your country involved in the Global Awards but do not yet have a national fundraising awards programme, the Resource Alliance can support you to set up your own national fundraising awards programme.
