Course Description

Communicating about your library’s fundraising can seem daunting, especially if you don’t regularly approach it or if your library doesn’t have any current donors. In this session, two veteran library fundraisers will share 10 ways that library marketers and administrators can integrate fundraising - from finding potential donors to thanking existing donors - into their messaging.

Learning objectives for this session include
  • Identify common misperceptions about communicating about fundraising
