Welcome to the Philanthropy Forward Scholarship Program, an initiative by Advancement Resources dedicated to nurturing the future of philanthropy by empowering smaller organizations through knowledge and development opportunities.

Our Mission:

In a world where the need for philanthropic impact is greater than ever, we believe in sharing whatever we can to help the organizations striving to make a difference. Recognizing that not all nonprofits have the resources to access high-level fundraising and development training, we are offering scholarships of up to $1200 discount at some of our virtual events this year, including: The Art and Science of Donor Development. Full price is $2,950 for the workshop and 3 individual coaching sessions. That goes down to $1,750 with this discount where you will be a full attendee but without individual coaching sessions.

Why Apply?

  • Access to Expertise: Learn from leading experts in donor development and philanthropy.
  • Networking Opportunities: Connect with like-minded professionals and expand your support network.
  • Enhance Your Impact: Gain insights and tools to increase your organization’s philanthropic effectiveness.


  • You must work for a registered nonprofit organization.
  • Annual fundraising revenue of $50M or below for that organization (includes grants and according to the database we use to lookup info).
  • The organization must have a need for development training and resources (there must be an ongoing need to raise more funds).
  • These rules may be relaxed if you have been personally invited to apply by a member of the Advancement Resources team.
