A Message from CRD Board President Leah Goss:

Embracing Our Past – Envisioning Our Future: The Council for Resource Development Restructures to Better Serve Members

The Council for Resource Development is the member association for community college fundraising and grant development professionals.  With a fifty-year history that mirrors the growth of the community college movement, CRD has met member needs with programs carefully designed to advance both private and public support for public two-year colleges.  As the largest affiliated council of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), CRD is a trusted partner in advancing the mission of community colleges through professional development that strengthens the ability of Presidents, Foundation staff, board members, and grant writers to secure new resources.  Our 650 individual members represent over 600 of the nation’s 1047 public two-year institutions.

The environment for community colleges has changed significantly over the past fifty years, and CRD is responding to better serve its members.  The CRD Board of Directors has undertaken a comprehensive review of the organization’s structure, programs and services.  The result will be an enhanced capacity to meet member needs with a focus on leadership development and programs that are targeted to address the most relevant issues in our field today and in the future.

Meanwhile, CRD will continue to offer outstanding programming for members.  Please review the 2016 summer programming offerings, which include:
