As government funds continue to dwindle, obtaining necessary financial resources becomes more challenging, and perhaps never so vital to the future of libraries. This CAMLS – NOLA, half-day workshop will provide an overview of many proven fundraising techniques. Both traditional and unorthodox methods will be examined, and fundraising and development professional Kathryn Lima will clarify the roles that directors, trustees and friends groups can play in raising new dollars.

A spirited, team approach has never been more crucial, so bring the representatives from your Board of Trustees and Friends group. Everyone will leave with a better understanding of how to make the team more effective, new ideas for fundraising and a renewed commitment to success.
