The CRD Resource Development Boot Camp (formerly Specialist Training) program is a two-week training intensive introduction to all facets of resource development in the community college. Many of the nations' most successful community college development and alumni professionals have participated. The experiential learning environment, case-based classes, and invaluable networking will provide you with the essential elements common to private fundraising, public grant seeking and best practice office operations. Funds donated are usually from those attendees that have passed through specialist training in its more than 30 year history of existence.
Funds from the scholarship fund will help to offset some of the costs that the interns incur while attending this training.
"Being a new Executive Director of a Community College Foundation I have found the resources available to me through CRD to be invaluable.
The conferences I have attended and the interaction with my colleagues from across the country have immensely accelerated my learning curve.
Thank you CRD for the role that you play in helping me positively affect the students of GRCC!"
