Fundraising Consultant (A.MI.CO. Program)

International Organization for Migration


IOM’s Coordination Office for the Mediterranean designs and implements initiatives whose aim is to promote the role of diaspora organizations in the social, economic, and cultural growth of the countries they bridge. Since 2011, IOM Italy has carried out numerous capacity-building initiatives directed to local diasporic organizations operating in Italy. Thanks to the contribution of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, IOM projects contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the UN’s 2030 Agenda.

Among such initiatives, the Migrant Association for Co-Development program (A.MI.CO.) aims to assist and fund local diaspora organizations in the design and promotion of co-development projects.

In this framework, a manual on project development and implementation (Manuale di progettazione per Associazioni di Migranti) tailored on diaspora organizations’ specificities and needs has been developed in 2019. IOM Italy intends to integrate this manual with an extra module related to fundraising, in particular: one-to-many and corporate fundraising.
