The CASE District V Board supports fresh and innovative programming ideas for professional development and networking opportunities organized by advancement professionals at member institutions.

The Venture Fund

Consider the possibilities

  • Do you want to create a networking group of advancement professionals at other institutions, but lack funding to get it off the ground? 
  • Have you and a few colleagues wanted to host a cross-institution professional development program, but lacked the resources to make it happen?
  • Have you wanted to hold a mini-conference on a topic that isn’t covered at the annual district conferences?


  • Successful applications will meet the following criteria:
  • Impact on a number of CASE V professionals
  • Collaboration of CASE V member institutions
  • Programs that do not replicate existing programs offered by CASE V including the annual conference
  • Comprehensive budget including justification of the need for funding
  • Identified need and desired outcomes with correlation to CASE International and District V priorities
  • Available for all District V institutions, large and small, urban and rural, public and private.

The Venture Fund is not:

A way to pay tuition for existing classes or participation in a program that a CASE V member is attending or a single institution team.
