Fundraising Basics

Date(s) - 02/28/2019
10:00 am - 11:00 am



Libraries of all types experience fluctuations in funding from their communities, colleges and universities, or other parent organizations; often finding themselves needing to do more with less. As a result, libraries may need to develop new revenue streams. One way to accomplish this is through fundraising. But many of us don’t know where to begin and might even be fearful at the idea of having to ask strangers for money. What we may not realize is that there are likely many people in our communities who would be happy to contribute to library programs and services if we ask them. This webinar will cover basic fundraising concepts and offer tips for identifying and approaching prospective donors. Participants should be able to take away some ideas to start their own fundraising projects.

Please Note: The recording will only be available to registered attendees.

Priority seating will be given to TBLC Members
