Your starting point for fundraising success!
The Resource Alliance has a 12 year history of organising the IWRM. It is widely recognised as the leading training for building the fundraising capacity of non-profit organisations in the emerging economies. Host countries have included India, Thailand, Uganda, Malaysia, South Africa and Kenya.
The IWRM is a three to four day Workshop focused on providing comprehensive training in all aspects of resource mobilisation and sustainable fundraising techniques.
