Impact Stories

The Resource Alliance exists to connect and empower those people, organisations and entities that are creating positive, lasting change in the world. Through events like IFC and IFC Asia or programmess focused on leadership, scholarship and mentorship, we eat, sleep, live and breathe collaboration and all of the good things that come from it.

We often hear from people who have attended a Resource Alliance event or somehow otherwise expanded their fundraising or their vision or their confidence through a relationship with us. We cherish their stories and will be sharing them with you here, soon.

Has the Resource Alliance or any of our events or programmes touched you or your organisation? Get in touch to share your story.

What is the IFC?

"I feel fully energized and inspired, I feel like no long validation processes, structures and hierarchies, can stop me from telling the stories of the thousands and million of people we help in the world."
