Workshop on fund raising

From: Jennifer LeFurgy <jlefurgy>
Date: Thursday, October 3, 1996
Workshop Will Show How to Augment Fund Raising Using Collections

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 National
Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property (NIC) has
developed Capitalize on Collections Care: A Fund-Raising Workshop, a
one-day program to explore 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.  The program is
being cosponsored by museum and library organizations in five
locations during the fall of 1996:

October 18, Searsport/Bucksport, Maine
Penobscot Marine Museum & Northeast Historic Film
Cosponsored by the Maine Association of Museums

October 28, Riverside, California
Historic Mission Inn
Cosponsored by the California Association of Museums with support
from the Inland California Museum Consortium

October 29, Waterford, New York
Collections Care Building, Peebles Island Resource Center
Cosponsored by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation &
Historic Preservation

November 19, Atlanta, Georgia
Emory University
Cosponsored by SOLINET

November 21, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Commonwealth Conservation Center
Cosponsored by the Pennsylvania Federation of Museums  and
Historical Organizations, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum
Commission and the Conservation Center for Art and Historic

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.
