PUBLICATION: Guide to Resource Mobilization
By addressing the resource mobilization needs of community-based development research organizations in a particular geographical context, this guidebook fills a gap in the material available on resource mobilization strategies and techniques. The guidebook documents the content of the trainings and capacity-building activities supported by IDRC (International Development Research Centre) and implemented by Venture for Fund Raising in Asia. It provides a collection of information and activities that can help development research non-profits to: plan resource mobilization in a strategic, mission-driven manner; build communications skills; design, implement and monitor resource mobilization activities; and learn from other's experiences. One of the key messages emerging from the guidebook is that resource mobilization is really not about the money, it's about the mission, commitment, and the steps taken to engage other people to support its fulfillment.
