LLAMA Fundraising and Financial Development Community


The Fund Raising and Financial Development community exercises responsibility for matters pertaining to fund raising and resource development for libraries. Illustrative of the fields of interest are foundation, trust, and endowment development and administration; annual giving and direct-mail fund raising programs; capital campaign planning and implementation, grantsmanship; and other areas of fund raising activity. The community addresses these areas by providing a forum for discussion; serving as a clearinghouse for the exchange of related ideas, information, and techniques; and providing a source for the research and development of guides, aids, and publications relating to financial resource development.

NOTE: this community will sunset in Fall 2017. Fundraising professionals will still have a home in LLAMA, and the division will still provide CE around deveopment topics, particularly at conferences.  However, the work of the community will be largely accomplshed through project teams.
