Diversify Your Library's Revenue

Please plan to join us online September 14 -16 for a wide range of sessions that will put you in touch with fundraising experts and teach you to raise more money for your library.

We know over 98% of library funding is politically motivated. But at the Library Advocacy and Funding Conference this September, we’re also interested in growing your philanthropic, CSR, and grant funding opportunities. 

 


Learn how to increase funding for your library at the Library Advocacy and Funding Conference.

If you’re interested in that too, please plan to join us online September 14 -16 for a wide range of sessions that will put you in touch with fundraising experts and teach you to raise more money for your library.

Here are a few programs, sessions, and panels in our “Diversify Your Revenue” Track that we’re really excited about:

  • If you’re interested in accessing Corporate Social Responsibility support from major corporations, you’ll get the chance to hear from AT&T, Coca-Cola, and Accenture about their CSR programs.

  • You’ll hear from Gail Perry, one of the nation’s leading major gift consultants, about how to solicit those large gifts from wealthy individuals.

  • Friends Groups and Foundations can see how to use tools like Aerio to increase online booksales.

  • Kristen Melek will show you how your library can raise more money through virtual fundraising and online events.

  • School librarians can learn about important fundraising opportunities like Follett Book Fairs and Read For My School to bring in more revenue to the school library.

  • Sade Dozen will show you how to align your organization to grow funding from foundation, corporation, and small-business support.

And, don’t forget that we’re adding new sessions all of the time so check back often! 

Registration starts at $75 for the Early Bird rate. It includes on-demand access to these excellent fundraising sessions plus dozens of programs about political action, organizing, and policy issues for all types of libraries. If you would like to learn about the effective strategies used by organizations and campaigns to build funder relationships, increase donations, and influence legislators, this is the conference for you.

We're offering 50 complimentary registrations to students as well as unemployed and underemployed library workers thanks to the generous support of Mango Languages.
