The Fundraising Institute Australia's Foundation (Library Trust Fund) was created in 1993 and the trustees are the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Honorary Secretary of the FIA Board of Directors. Operating as a DGR status fund, the trustees of the Foundation have a clear vision and purpose to:
- advance and develop training and education opportunities for fundraisers (including scholarships),
- develop the Library Resource Centre, and
- promote research into the fundraising industry.
The FIA Foundation is about fundraisers supporting their own, and giving back to their Institute which in turn sponsors their professional development.
