£5k prize for excellence in charity finance launches

Charity Finance Group has launched a £5,000 prize for excellence in charity finance.

The 2015 Adrian Randall Challenge Prize aims to share, encourage and inspire financial leadership in charities. Announcing the launch, CFG said the winner will be a charity finance professional who may have, for example, worked across their organisation to adapt to change or new challenges.

The winner may have worked in partnership with other teams to implement new systems, or ensured finance was at the heart of their organisation’s strategy.

CFG chief executive Caron Bradshaw said the aim is to recognise a project that can be replicated and shared with other charities.

“But the prize will help winners too, with benefits beyond the grant prize. It will help position their organisation as a dynamic, innovative leader with robust financial processes,” Bradshaw said. “We know there is excellent, inspiring financial leadership taking place in charities across the country: this prize will share and celebrate this.”

Nominations are open until 30 October, with winners to be presented with their prize at the CFG annual dinner on 12 November.
