It’s the 20th Anniversary since FICO was formed in 1997, as a forum for fundraisers working in Christian organisations. Today there are over 500 individuals and organisations linked to FICO through our various meetings and training events. FICO has no denominational affiliations and membership is open to all fundraisers working in Christian organisations, whether on a paid or voluntary basis.
We are very much a member led group and constantly seek feedback and input to the programme content.
