About the Author

Richard Holloway has over 30 years of experience as a development worker in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.


'Superbly detailed and commendably practical guide.' Mark Sidel, Associate Professor of Law, Research Fellow, University of Iowa 'Provides an excellent conceptual framework for the various approaches to resource mobilization.' Paiboon Wattanasiritham, Director General, Chief Executive Officer, Government Savings Bank, Thailand 'The general impression of diminishing foreign sources of funds for the non-profit sector makes this handbook all the more relevant and indispensable.' Rajeev Dua, Chief Executive Officer, South Asian Fund Raising Group 'Successful resource mobilization is not easy and this handbook comes as a valuable guide in charting a viable course which will no doubt inspire many.' Dorothy Gordon, Executive Director, Integrated Resources Group, Ghana 'This book goes to places that other guides never reach and never even think about... This handbook raises the level of common sense about funding.' Spore 'It is to Holloway's credit that he has given both newcomers and old hands useful information, analysis and the opportunity to join the debate and develop it.' Development in Practice
