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.
"With years of philanthropic and business experience, I achieved success quickly in the community college fundraising space because of CRD's, national conferences, online resources and webinars, and most of all the wonderful members of CRD who share so fully in our professional development."
