May-Jun: Easy Fundraising for Public Libraries (Infopeople)

An Infopeople online course, May 20, 2014 - June 16, 2014

Do you need some easy-to-implement fundraising strategies? Bake sales may be good for increasing waistlines, but they are not always worth the effort for the sometimes minimal increase in revenue.  In this course you will discover successful strategies for raising funds that you can implement immediately.  Explore sponsorships, social media and other online appeals, easy grant opportunities, fundraising events and "non-events." Additionally, you will learn:
•    Who to ask and why they will give to your library
•    Advocacy conversations and “friendraising”
•    Shortcuts to writing easy grant proposals

Fee: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
