Partnership Organisations

The National Association of Hospice Fundraisers is delighted to be working closely with the key partners below.

NAHF could not provide key benefits and support to members without the invaluable support of these organisations. They are instrumental in many hospice fundraisers reaching their demanding income budgets year after year and are as passionate about the hospice movement as we are and all five work in areas crucial to successful fundraising.

All members will have the opportunity to meet representatives from these organisations at both regional meetings and at the national conference. Please do make time to hear what they have to offer. You can also click below and access their websites.

What People Say About NAHF

Adrian Oke - St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice

My first day in fundraising was at NAHF Conference – what an introduction! From the get go I have been immersed in the wider picture of the Hospice movement and am truly inspired by how we work together on a national scale, especially given that I have come from a background focused on overcoming competition (and by that I mean I am one of ten siblings.) As you can imagine most of my spare time is spent buying birthday presents, planning Christmas six months in advance and sitting on the phone with my nan for three hours talking about everyone else.

Anne Brown - Saint Francis Hospice

As hospice fundraisers, we are in the fabulous position of doing the same work as one another but largely without being in competition. I love having the opportunity to meet other fundraisers, sharing ideas and experiences – both successes and the not-so successful – and learning from one another. Fundraising is relentless, hard work so it’s good to be able to help and encourage each other, and NAHF provides a brilliant platform to do this. It’s also so helpful to hear from experienced professionals, both at regional meetings and conference, who can educate and motivate us to become more effective, successful fundraisers.

Veronica McBain - St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice

For me, NAHF is a brilliant platform to support and encourage fundraisers and their hospices to raise as much money as possible. The regional meetings and annual conferences really are fantastic, not just for sharing best practice and ideas, but they act as great networking opportunities meaning members really do get value for money. It’s also reassuring knowing that there is always a listening ear amongst members, there’s always someone who has either experienced or done what you’ve done and they’re always willing to support one another. Here’s to another successful year

David McFadden - ACCORD Hospice

I love that you are able to be in the room with so many like-minded people, looking for the betterment of fundraising practice and sharing knowledge with each other. The more we can do to make the fundraising world a better place for our supporters, the better for everyone. I’m proud to be a Fundraiser, and even prouder to be a Hospice Fundraiser. It will be great to become more involved with NAHF and hopefully be a good voice for Scotland.

Megan Boyle - Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice

NAHF is fantastic. I love that Hospice Fundraisers come together to share experiences and help each other. I look forward to regional meetings and get very excited ahead of Conference because I know I’ll leave buzzing to get back to my Hospice with lots of ideas, a reignited excitement and more fellow fundraisers in my phone happy to help. Hospices are special, and so is NAHF. I feel very proud and grateful to be a part of such a supportive network, always striving to do better to support the fantastic work of our hospices.
