Elevating Skills and Program Results in 12 months

Welcome to our School of Advanced Fund Development. When you enroll, you embark on an intensive learning experience over 12 months that introduces you to the world of transformational fundraising. Our approach provides you with the skills and strategies required to maximize results for your organization and, in the process, elevate your own professional practice.

We begin with an immersive and interactive classroom learning environment that enlightens and challenges you. Students are provided with a binder of print materials organized around each module covered, including samples, templates and tools to augment their practice as they move from the classroom back into their workplace.

The next phase will take us into your workplace that will become the live training ground. Twelve months of actually working your program – bringing rigour and analysis to your approach. RBR’s experienced coaches will be there by your side guiding the process, acting as a sounding board and assisting with strategies.

Our Faculty

Our School relies on more than 50 years of experience and expertise that the senior partners at RBR bring to this learning experience. As well, the considerable talents of other RBR team members are brought into the classroom and coaching program.

We have devised a number of streams in the School to allow you to customize to your needs. Take a look:
