Venture for Fund Raising Releases a New Publication on Resource Mobilization


Resource Mobilization: A Practical Guide for Research and Community-Based Organizations

Venture's practical guidebook promotes new and creative ways of resource mobilization for community-based development research organizations.  It features resource mobilization concepts, case studies, tools and templates, articles and presentations used in capacity building activities implemented by Venture for IDRC partners.

Synopsis:

This guidebook is for development research organizations with different levels of fund raising knowledge and skills.  The guidebook supports that resource mobilization is a strategic process, which is grounded in effective organizational management, brought to life by creative communication and sustained through nurturing relationships with stakeholders.  It documents the capacity-building activities supported by IDRC and implemented by Venture, with contributions of experts on topics such as negotiations, financial management, proposal-writing and communications.

It features resource mobilization concepts, strategies, tools, case studies, and various research studies, with the aim of helping development research organizations to:

  • Plan resource mobilization in a strategic mission-driven – as opposed to donor-driven – manner;
  • Build skills in proposal writing, handling face-to-face meetings, and communication key messages;
  • Design, implement and monitor resource mobilization activities; and
  • Learn how other research development organizations have addressed resource mobilization challenges.

This work was carried out with the aid of a grant from Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC)
