Founded in 1987, Charity Finance Group’s training and development programmes enable finance managers to give the essential leadership on finance strategy and management that their charities need. With more than 1,400 members, managing over £21.1 billion, (which represents almost one third of the sector’s income), we are uniquely placed to challenge regulation which threatens the effective use of charity funds. The culture of sharing and contributing to the wider sector beyond the individual charities in membership is at the heart of CFG's activities. Charity Finance Group is active in the policy arena as well as in education and training and provides information and support for members and the wider charity sector on different levels. We work with other organisations, regulators and charities to input charity expertise to the regulatory process, and to develop best practice in charity management. In this quest, CFG is represented on many committees and working parties established by professional bodies and government departments, including the APB Public Sector and Not-for-Profit Committee and the SORP Review Committee.
