The Charity Finance Group is an umbrella body for people working in the finance department of charities. It was originally know as the Charity Finance Directors’ Group and changed its name in February 2012.
The organisation was founded in 1987 by Adrian Randall, then FD at Cancer Research Campaign, with an initial membership of 130 charities. Present chief executive Caron Bradshaw took up the reins in July 2010, following nearly four years under the stewardship of Keith Hickey. Hickey left at the end of 2009 to become FD at RNIB.
