The mission of the Resource Alliance is to be the global network for fundraising, resource mobilisation and philanthropy. We build skills, knowledge and promote excellence within civil society. In order to achieve this, we are pleased to offer bursaries to eligible candidates to participate in its activities.
The Fundraisers Fund supports the professional development of some of the rising stars in fundraising in emerging markets. Managed by the Resource Alliance, the fund enables fundraisers to access appropriate training opportunities and information and improves their ability to raise funds for social causes. The Fundraisers Fund evolved out of the Resource Alliance’s Guy Stringer bursary fund, which was established and launched in October 2002 through the support of a number of corporate donors, including the founding corporate partner SAZ, and enables fundraisers from developing philanthropic markets / emerging economies to attend the International Fundraising Congress (IFC) and the International Workshop on Resource Mobilisation (IWRM) as well as other fundraising events, conferences and training.
Support has also been provided through the Gill Astaria Memorial Fund which, although no longer accepting donations, over the three years it was in operation raised over £50,000 which continues to support fundraisers from emerging economies to participate in capacity-building activities with the Resource Alliance, for example by providing bursaries to those who would not otherwise be able to access these opportunities.
