D203: Growing Philanthropic Dollars for Libraries

1:45 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Kathryn Dilworth, Assistant Dean of Advancement and External Relations, College of Science and Mathematics, Cal Poly Author, Fundraising for the Academic Library: Philanthropy in Higher Education

This session discusses the importance of collaborating with colleagues across campus and communities and how to work closely with fundraising professionals to leverage the work of library professionals to increase philanthropic dollars. It shares a variety of cases and also reviews the standard mechanisms for giving. Library professionals can and should take a lead role in the task of fundraising, not only to further disseminate their research and increase knowledge of the library, but should also create collaborative projects with greater expertise and impact that reach beyond the library. Dilworth looks at the potential for the library to be the environment in the community, campus, or sector that is best positioned to nurture, celebrate, and promote philanthropy.
