Communicating about your library’s fundraising can seem daunting, especially if you don’t regularly do it or if your library doesn’t have any donors. In this session, two veteran library fundraisers will share 10 ways that library marketers can integrate fundraising, from finding potential donors to thanking existing donors, into their messaging.

This webinar will be recorded, and a link to the recording will be given to all paid registrants.
