About Us

FMD Pro Supporters Circle

The FMD Pro initiative is made possible through the generous financial support of these organizations:  Mango, LINGOs, InsideNGO, the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, World Vision International, Catholic Relief Services, FHI360, Orange, Cornerstone on Demand Foundation, and Mercy Corps.

FMD Pro Working Group

The FMD Pro Working Group informs the scope, content and management of the initiative.  Participants come from a diversity of backgrounds, each contributing (and benefiting) in unique ways:


NGOs can inform the design, content and learning objectives of the standard created by FMD Pro.  Working in coordination with other NGOs on the Working Group provides a significant advantage over creating the content on their own.


Donors can increase the effectiveness, efficiency and impact of their investments, while improving the performance and compliance of their projects.

Training Organizations

Training organizations can expand the scope, quality and reach of their activities by supporting a new, standardized, scalable, certification-based training product.

Private Sector

Private-sector partners from the audit, accounting and banking sector can support the initiative by sharing intellectual capital and investing in a corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity that aligns with their core competency area.
