A Handbook on Resource Mobilization for Civil Society Organizations in the South

This is a clear and practical guide aimed at the managers of civil society organisations, including non-governmental organisations, citizens' movements, cooperatives, trade unions and other grass-roots organisations primarily in developing countries, on how to mobilise funds and other resources and in doing so become financially self-reliant. The author examines numerous and varied options, covering earned income, local foundations, governmental sources, foreign agencies, the corporate sector, microcredit, the internet and social investments, setting these within a strategic overview of planning and management effectiveness.

Published in association with Aga Khan Foundation and CIVICUS.

Richard Holloway has over 30 year's experience as a development worker in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.

  • 'The days of waiting for a cheque to arrive from America or Europe are over. This handbook is a solid piece of work, illustrating 12 different ways of acquiring or generating resources for NPOs. It is not based on theory but tried and tested approaches. Now is the time to hone skills, acquire training and become creative.'

    ANN BOWN, Chairperson, Southern African Institute of Fundraising (SAIF): Education and Training
