International Academy for Advancement Leadership


With increasing pressure to raise more private dollars, advancement teams are growing rapidly. This influx of new team members, combined with more demanding and sophisticated donors and larger philanthropic goals, requires existing leaders to develop new, more complex skills and high-potential team members to boldly step into the leadership arena.

To address this rising need, Advancement Resources has created an exclusive program specially for current leaders in the advancement field: the International Academy for Advancement Leadership.

The International Academy for Advancement Leadership is a 6-month engagement that brings together a robust collection of leadership best practices. By exploring these concepts in a small cohort (no more than 20), participants have the opportunity to network, learn from others’ experiences, and explore challenges in a comfortable, welcoming environment.
