The Library Advocacy and Funding Conference has amazing content for Library Associations, Consortiums, Friends Groups, and Foundations

The Library Advocacy and Funding Conference (LAFCON) is a perfect opportunity for members of library associations, consortiums, advocacy groups, friends of the library organizations, and library foundations to learn more advanced skills that will help them support their libraries.

There are quite a few sessions that are tailored to these audiences and will train them in some of the most advanced advocacy tactics and strategies used by successful advocacy and cause related 501c3 and 501c4 organizations in the country. 


Register for the Library Advocacy and Funding Conference today and learn more about using data to build support for library funding.

Most critically, we will have sessions on the legal boundaries for nonprofits involving themselves in political actions and ballot initiatives. There are many misconceptions about the limits of political activity that can be carried out by nonprofit organizations that support libraries. We’ve heard them all! That’s why we included sessions on how 501c3s can interact with 501c4 organizations, ballot initiatives, candidate campaigns, legislation, and much more. If you’re concerned about losing your organization’s 501c3 status by participating in the democratic process, we’ll have sessions on what your organization can and can’t do.

Many of our sessions on fundraising through individual donors, corporate giving, and grants will help your organizations learn new  passive and active fundraising tactics. There are dozens of opportunities to raise money that have little to no cost, but have not been implemented by many of our industry organizations. . We’ll introduce you to platforms  that can increase your corporate donations and help donors double the amounts they give without adding more work to your organization.

Finally, you’ll learn how to build real political power and influence for libraries. Since nearly 98% of library funding is political via legislation or elections, your organization needs to understand how to build political support for libraries among voters and exert pressure on local, state, and federal legislators who hold your purse strings. There are also many ways your library support organization can legally educate voters, build voter support, and encourage voters to support funding libraries in your area.

If you want to increase your organization’s ability to support libraries, you aren’t going to want to miss out on this one of a kind conference!
