The Financial Resilience program offered by Spring Strategies was a life changer for me. Prior to the course, I always thought of resource mobilization as this enormously difficult thing to undertake. I was worried that I did not have enough experience or skills to be able to write winning proposals and appeal to donors. Transformation for me was swift as it actually began during the course. The Financial Resilience program created a huge paradigm shift for me in how I relate with donors which has been extremely useful for me to date. The program addresses how to powerfully communicate your work to different stakeholders and has empowered me to train other program staff on stories of impact. I would strongly recommend the course to anyone who feels that they need a new approach to financial resilience, especially in this context of diminishing funds for CSO work globally. The course works as it brings together finance staff with leadership functions on communications and resource mobilization, and supports a holistic approach where staff together develop an organization wide financial resilience plan and practice. Take the course, you won’t regret it!
