School of Fundraising
Professionally trained and experienced fundraisers are in short supply in some areas of the world. To meet the need for high quality training, the Resource Alliance has historically offered a series of foundation courses in fundraising for non-profits.
These courses are run in partnership with a number of educational institutions around the world, and the material covered is tailored to the needs of each individual country, ensuring that fundraising in developing countries continues to grow, both in terms of professionalism and capacity.
Through our School of Fundraising we offer a range of course options, including, a one year part-time postgraduate diploma course taught through a combination of face-to-face learning and home study, and an advanced intensive certificate course taught through classroom work, presentations, group-work and case studies.
We are currently undertaking a review of all our course and want you to help us, follow this link to see how.
