The participant's manual contains training materials for a national conference on mobilizing resources and fund raising in agencies concerned with promoting independent living for people with disabilities. Preliminary materials include the conference agenda, background information about the trainers, organizational information on Independent Living Research Utilization and the National Council on Independent Living, and a list of the conference's learning objectives. The next section focuses on elements of a fund-raising plan and explains the various sections of such a plan such as the case statement to present to donors, organizational development, funding history, funding opportunities, funding strategy, and how to structure the fund raising strategy. The bulk of the document consists of the visuals for a PowerPoint presentation titled "Mobilizing Resources for Independent Living Centers". These materials address the following aspects: funding trends across America; raising money from national organizations; advantages and disadvantages of funding; tips on raising money; writing winning proposals; strategic marketing; corporate sponsorships and partnerships; the corporate partnership approach to the corporation; religious funding; individuals and donors; board and organizational development; keys to leadership; and putting it all together. A sample corporate sponsorship presentation package is followed by a case study. (DB)
