Types of IDPE membership and subscriptions

IDPE membership provides access to IDPE’s educational training, benchmarking and resources for all members of staff involved in professional fundraising and alumni relations within a school.


There are two types of membership:

  • Institutional for schools with established development offices or with an active professional fundraising and alumni relations programme.
  • Associate for individuals looking to enter the schools’ development sector or taking a career break.

State schools benefit from a £100 discount off the annual institutional subscription fee.


Institutional membership subscription

IDPE’s annual subscription fee for institutional members is £515* for 2021.  Annual subscriptions run for a fixed period between 1 January and 31 December.

For members joining part way through a year the initial year’s subscription is based on a sliding scale, depending on the month they join.


Associate membership subscription

Associate members (individuals looking to enter the sector who are currently not working for a school) benefit from a discounted rate of £60* per quarter.

For individuals working as consultants or in the process of setting up a consultancy or who are acting as interim development directors, IDPE corporate partnership is available.
