Many libraries encourage staff to participate in opportunities for the library to engage in their community outside of their walls, this session will discuss ways that partnerships can provide opportunities for funding. Join Susan Miller and Megan Martin as they discuss ways that they’ve utilized partnerships to drive fundraising and greater awareness of the library in their community. This session will include strategies for asking for funding to support specific programs for your Library, and how fundraising can strengthen partnerships and lead to community buy-in. The presenters will share lessons and tips learned from a combined 30 plus years working in libraries.
At the end of this session you will be able to:
- Create a strategy for fundraising.
- Evaluate when to ask.
- Leverage supporters as part of your “team.”
