CHICAGO—Whether it’s a natural disaster, violent incident, or public utility problem, when disasters strike, communities need money to rebuild. Library staff need to understand how to raise money in an emergency. In this free webinar, librarian and fundraising expert Ed Rossman will address what libraries and nonprofits can do besides depending on FEMA and other government aid resources. Ed will address issues like legal and board policy considerations, contracts and procedures, promotion and marketing, partnerships and other common challenges in the fundraising process.
