Event: Raising Your Sights: How to Make Your Library a Top Priority for High-Impact Donors
April 19-21, 2020: San Jose, CA at ALADN 2020
Exact date and time TBA.
Libraries are an essential, well-loved part of every university—but they’re often not a top priority for philanthropists. How can libraries raise their visibility with high-impact donors?
This session will share the University of Washington Libraries’ journey as it has worked to move from peripheral concern to top priority in the minds of principal donors. Presenters will discuss strategies for telling your story in a different way, positioning your library as a vital resource, and engaging philanthropists with this new approach. Audience members will have the chance to share experiences, ask questions, and shape the conversation along the way.
