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:
oa presentation of fund-raising tenets by Victoria Steele, coauthor of
Becoming a Fundraiser: The Principles and Practice of Library
ostrategies for identifying private sources of funding including
corporations, foundations and individuals presented by Pattie J.
Johnson, director of the Foundation Center
oa case study of a major gifts campaign for preservation, conservation
and building renovations at the Owens-Thomas House, Savannah, Georgia
oa 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.
