The Council for Resource Development (CRD) is the essential education and networking choice for all community college development professionals. CRD connects, educates, supports, strengthens, and celebrates community college development professionals. An affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges, CRD serves over 1750 members at more than 750 institutions.
CRD is a member-driven organization. Our programs are developed and delivered by professionals currently employed in the field of resource development at two-year colleges. Drawing on the expertise and experience of our peers ensures that programming is current, relevant, and applicable.
Membership is open to anyone interested in the welfare of community colleges, and includes donor development officers, grant development and management officers, foundation directors, alumni development officers, graduate students, college presidents, administrators, faculty, and staff.
CRD is the ONLY association focusing on professional development and leadership opportunities for institutional advancement professionals at community colleges -- CRD has played a tremendous role in my career.
