Offer: Young Feminist Wire Fourth E-Learning Session: Resource Mobilization 101
The Young Feminist Wire is now accepting registrations for the NEW e-learning session of the Interrogating Movements series on Resource Mobilization!
Resource mobilization is an essential part of sustaining and building movements and therefore plays an important role in shaping and developing women’s rights movements. At the same time, resource mobilization or fundraising, as it is more often called, cannot be perceived as separate from the other work and politics of an organization. Women’s organizations often struggle to effectively communicate the value and impact of their work, while at the same time, approaching fundraising from a competitive perspective rather than as a collective effort. This e-learning session addresses communication and fundraising as political processes. It explores the relationship between donors, funding organizations and women’s rights NGOs and our own personal relationships to money and other kinds of resources. There will also be discussion of challenges that women’s rights organizations and particularly initiatives organized by young women face in mobilizing the resources they need to do their work. It will offer an overview of the funding landscape for women’s rights, an introduction on how to mobilize resources and discuss where to look for fundraising and donor information. Examples and discussion in this session will focus on answering questions relevant to the funding landscape of young women.
