Description: From Library Journal
In this super collection of fundraising advice, tips, and suggestions that is relevant for all libraries, Swan (dir., Central Kansas Library System and the Great Bend Public Library) expands on his previous Fundraising for the Small Public Library (1990). Designed to help librarians find needed money, Swan's handy guide examines key elements of fundraising, reviews methods for increasing regular funding, explores successful grant writing, discusses ways to find funds for capital improvements, presents steps in soliciting money, explains the principles of passive fundraising, and discusses how to enlist help from other sources. The second part includes an excellent, clear discussion of Swan's 25 proven techniques, including such successful efforts as initiating capital campaigns for buildings, promoting deferred giving, passing bond issues, passing referenda for funds, building endowments, lobbying for state support, holding auctions of donated goods, sending direct mail solicitation, and soliciting memorial gifts. While some of these ideas may validate existing efforts, many will likely delight readers eager for creative, new ways to generate additional funds. Swan is to be commended for adding this important discussion about fundraising principles, including forming the right attitude about raising funds, creating a positive image in the minds of library customers about library services, providing library customers with what they want, and making sure donors are publicly recognized for their support. Highly recommended for all libraries, especially those now experiencing financial distress.
