The Chapel & York International Fundraising Awards 2024

Welcome to the Chapel & York International Fundraising Awards, the new and exciting initiative from The Home of International Fundraising and Philanthropy.

2024 awards

Celebrating success and good practice

Our awards celebrate success and good practice by organisations fundraising internationally. Open globally to both Chapel & York clients and organisations around the world, these prestigious Awards recognise and celebrate excellence achieved by charities, non-profits, educational institutions, INGO’s and others who fundraise from donors outside their country.

Our rigorous judging process involves an independent panel of experts for each category, with three finalists chosen to compete in each.

We recognise those fundraisers who produce the best results in the international fundraising world, often under time and financial constraints. Our entries are fully scrutinised and independently and rigorously judged, making winning an award a tremendous achievement.

Entries are sought across 5 categories each designed to recognise and showcase the outstanding achievements of organisations worldwide.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to be recognised as a thought leader and innovator in global fundraising. Join us and submit your entry today!

Why enter

Celebrate your success

Celebrate your efforts and innovation in international fundraising by entering the Chapel & York International Fundraising Awards. We understand the work, resources and commitment required for international fundraising, and we want to recognise your success.

Visibility of your work

Our awards will be showcased through major philanthropy and not-for-profit media. Both finalists and winners in each category will be featured on social media, including LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube, providing extensive visibility of your work.

Increase organisation awareness

Category finalists will receive a “Finalist” logo for use on their media, while category winners will receive a physical award to exhibit, a digital “Winner” logo for display, and a video from the judges describing why they were chosen, which they can highlight and share on their media channels.

Build recognition

Winning an award can enhance credibility, appeal to more donors and boost awareness, in addition to helping you stand out among your peers and the wider not-for-profit sector.  Submit your entry today to showcase your international fundraising skills to the world and bolster support for your cause.


Useful Information

The criteria which the judges will use in reviewing your entry (in the context of your organisation, its size, its age, its programmes, its location) are:

  • Financial Success (i.e. did you reach your monetary goal)
  • Involvement Rate (did you reach your goal for involving the numbers of international stakeholders you wanted)
  • ROI
  • Innovation/Creativity (sometimes numbers are not the best measure of success and this criteria judges how you addressed your situation in international fundraising)

The intent of the criteria is to give you a basis under which the judges will look at entries but it is your overall work which will be judged.

We welcome your submissions and there is no charge for entry.
