International Public Fundraising Council

About us

The International Public Fundraising Council (IPFC) is a worldwide network of face-to-face regulatory associations with the collective goal of working together and sharing experience to strengthen face-to-face fundraising regulation across the globe. IPFC also aims at raising face-to-face fundraising standards. It was created in 2019 and is now composed of 5 official members:
- AMRAC (France)
- F2F Monthly Giving Alliance (Hong Kong)
- Fundraising Regulator (United Kingdom)
- QUIF (Austria)
- Q!SH (Germany)
We are also currently working in close collaboration with the following observers associations: PFRA (Australia), PFRA (New Zealand) and PFFA (United States).
Together we represent the F2F fundraising regulatory community with a single voice and a shared ambition: a better F2F fundraising regulation and higher standards! Hence, we will be participating in the International F2F Conference in Vienna, next November 2020.

What we do

We set standards and enhance good practices. Our common Code of Conduct is designed to ensure that all face-to-face fundraising activities are carried out with the best interest of the donors.
We increase international cooperation on F2F fundraising regulation by sharing experiences, information and tools with our members, through regular group working sessions.
We encourage and support the creation of self-regulatory bodies for F2F fundraising throughout the world by sharing lessons-learned and kindly advice new members.


Membership of the IPFC is an indication that an association has voluntarily adopted a higher standard (Code of Conduct) and has also agreed to be held accountable to that standard. IPFC Members are also expected to encourage their own members to comply with this latter.
Membership of IPFC is open to any association aiming at regulating F2F fundraising nationally.

Its fundamental principles aim to maintain a strong coherence between the fundraising practices of the members and the values of the advocated associations through the face-to-face programs. To achieve this goal the AMRAC relies on a strict Code of Conduct.
