Navesink I & II

Where there are Friends there are Dollars

Libraries have a built-in fundraising asset - their clients. However most libraries lack experience in planned fundraising.  In the current economy and for public libraries, the additional threat of legislative changes, it is time to get serious. This keynote will help recognize intrinsic library strengths, identify the core basics needed to get started, and assure you that fundraising is friend-raising, not magic.
