Resource mobilization (RM) is the process of getting resource from resource provider, using different mechanisms, to implement the organization’s work for achieving the pre-determined organizational goals. It deals in acquiring the needed resources in a timely-cost effective manner. Resource mobilization is about an organization getting the resources that are needed to be able to do the work it has planned. Resource mobilization is more than just fundraising; it is about getting a range of resources from a wide range of resources providers (or donor) through a number of different mechanisms.
