Successful fundraising can supplement a substantial portion of your library’s budget if you know how to do it right.

Fundraising Bootcamp – the Changing Face of Philanthropy 

In this intensive, daylong workshop, Carole J. Pence, President of Pence Consulting, will cover key fundraising concepts and strategies and provide the tools you need to begin a campaign or enhance an established giving program. You'll learn what is needed to write your case for support, the difference between a donation and cultivation of a major gift, how to solicit different types of gifts using different communication strategies as well as a brief introduction to planned giving by promoting a legacy gift through a wills program.
