Subject: Workshop on fund raising

Workshop on fund raising

From: Jennifer LeFurgy <jlefurgy>
Date: Friday, August 9, 1996
Workshop will show how to augment fund raising using collections
care. As federal funds for cultural institutions are increasingly
threatened in the current political climate, institutions must
expand their fund raising to new horizons.  So the Southeastern
Library Network, Inc. (SOLINET) and the National Institute for the
Conservation of Cultural Property (NIC) are cosponsoring Capitalize
on Collections Care: A Fund-Raising Workshop. Scheduled for November
19, 1996 in Atlanta, the program will teach how museums, libraries
and historic preservation organizations can make a fund-raising case
using collections care.  The program focuses on the private sector
and state and local governments as new sources of support for
collections care, conservation and preservation.

Capitalize on Collections Care will demonstrate how institutions can
creatively incorporate collections care, conservation and
preservation into fund-raising activities.  Collections care can be
an effective tool for raising money and invigorating a fund-raising
program.  Conservation has unique visual qualities that can motivate
potential donors by showing them tangible results of financial
support.  The program teaches creative approaches to integrating
collections care into basic fund-raising strategies such as annual
appeals, capital campaigns, earned income, planned giving and
adopt-an-object programs.

Highlights of the program include:

    *   a presentation of fund-raising tenets by Victoria Steele,
        coauthor of Becoming a Fundraiser: The Principles and
        Practice of Library Development

    *   strategies for identifying private sources of funding
        including corporations, foundations and individuals
        presented by Pattie J. Johnson, director of the Foundation

    *   a case study of a major gifts campaign for preservation,
        conservation and building renovations at the Owens-Thomas
        House, Savannah, Georgia

    *   a panel of representatives from southeastern institutions to
        discuss successful and innovative strategies for
        incorporating collections care into fundraising activities.

This workshop is designed for librarians, archivists and museum
professionals responsible for, or interested in, incorporating
collections care into their fundraising activities.
