The DMFA realizes that all too often fundraisers (and those who are interested in fundraising as a career) face tight budgets that prevent them from pursuing continuing professional development. We hope the establishment of this fund will provide resources to subsidize their educational costs.
The $10,000 annual funding pool is expected to award more than 20 individual stipends each year, and applications can be submitted for amounts between $50 and $1,000.
The DMFA believes that when one of us becomes a better fundraiser, it helps lift up all his or her peers as well. Whether it is a one-hour webinar, a full-day seminar, or one of the annual conferences organized by industry peers, we hope this fund will make education more attainable for fundraisers and aspiring fundraisers of all levels.
Interested applicants should read the Scholarship Fund requirements and fill out the online application. Applicants are required to submit a 250-word description of what type of event they would like to attend and how they expect their attendance will benefit themselves, their organization, and the broader industry.
