Annotation: This workbook is designed to help youth-mentoring agencies and programs create a customized resource-development plan within the context of a long-term strategy.
Abstract: The workbook first defines "resource-development planning" as "the intentional process used to set resource development and sustainability goals, as well as the mechanism used to track progress toward attaining those goals." The key elements of all good plans are noted to be the promotion of systematic development, the successful navigation of change, and the encouragement of sustainable and rational growth. In describing the process of a resource planning cycle, the second section of the workbook describes how to organize for planning, assess the current situation, assess long-term goals, and develop a plan and process to achieve the goals. This section is accompanied by planning worksheets and other useful tools. The second section of the book profiles the primary funding streams that are typically part of a resource development strategy. Chapters in this section pertain to government funding, foundation support, direct corporate support, local support and support from events, and individual giving. Although this section presents each strategy as a separate approach, the assumption is that programs will integrate more than one strategy to create a diversified resource base. Each chapter in this section is organized around a common framework that outlines the general principles related to the topic, presents real-life examples and lessons learned, offers a self-assessment checklist, and suggests steps for getting started. The workbook's final section introduces three additional components of resource-development planning that transcend the plan itself; namely, involving the board in resource development, using advocacy effectively, and ethical considerations in resource development. 14 suggested resources
