TRMC views boosting private sector engagement, forging partnerships and promoting these collaborations as the key drivers for resource creation. Our interventions are based on the following seven basic elements:
- Vision and strategy
- Harnessing the competency base
- Organizational intelligence
- Creativity and idea management
- Organizational structures and systems
- Culture and climate, and
- Technology management.
TRMC evolved to help organizations in the non-profit sector structure and manage their resources, and use strategies to source funds without losing sight of their overarching mission and goals. There is often a danger that in the search for funding, organizations may move away from their mission to gain donor funding. TRMC works to help these organizations think about their long-term impact in the areas they work, align them with their fundamental goals, and see how they can build relationships around achieving these aims.
Our mission is to support the non-profit and civil society sectors in areas of strategic resource mobilization and sustainability; harnessing expertise in communications, relationship building, and innovation.
Our vision is to create a civil society sector that has a broader view of financial sustainability, which incorporates resource mobilization, branding, and organizational and financial administration as key pillars of strategic management.
