Supporting Library Fundraising as a Frontline Worker (without actually fundraising)
Live Online $0.00 / $95.00


Did you know that as a frontline staff member you are a fundraiser for your library? Yes, that's right. Actually, all staff members are fundraisers. Fundraising is a shared role in which everyone has certain responsibilities. As a frontline worker, you are the face of the library. You have more interaction with the library's patrons and donors than the executive staff and board do.

Join fundraising master trainer, Chad Barger, CFRE, CNP, for this workshop which will cover simple, practical steps that you can use to support fundraising (so your library can get a few more things off the wish list), without having to ask anyone for money.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

  • Explain why fundraising is a shared endeavor for all library staff
  • Describe three ways to support fundraising as a frontline staff member that aren't directly asking for money.
