     Workshop Will Show How to Augment Fund Raising Using Collections Care

     As federal funds for cultural institutions are increasingly threatened
     in the current political climate, institutions must expand their fund
     raising to new horizons.  So the Southeastern Library Network, Inc.
     (SOLINET) and the National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural
     Property (NIC) are cosponsoring Capitalize on Collections Care: A
     Fund-Raising Workshop.  Scheduled for November 19, 1996 in Atlanta,
     the program will teach how museums, libraries and historic
     preservation organizations can make a fund-raising case using
     collections care.  The program focuses on the private sector and state
     and local governments as new sources of support for collections care,
     conservation and preservation.

     Capitalize on Collections Care will demonstrate how institutions can
     creatively incorporate collections care, conservation and preservation
     into fund-raising activities.  Collections care can be an effective
     tool for raising money and invigorating a fund-raising program.
     Conservation has unique visual qualities that can motivate potential
     donors by showing them tangible results of financial support.  The
     program teaches creative approaches to integrating collections care
     into basic fund-raising strategies such as annual appeals, capital
     campaigns, earned income, planned giving and adopt-an-object programs.

     Highlights of the program include:
     oa presentation of fund-raising tenets by Victoria Steele, coauthor of
     Becoming a Fundraiser: The Principles and Practice of Library
     Development
     ostrategies for identifying private sources of funding including
     corporations, foundations and individuals presented by Pattie J.
     Johnson, director of the Foundation Center
     (more)

     oa case study of a major gifts campaign for preservation, conservation
     and building renovations at the Owens-Thomas House, Savannah, Georgia
     oa panel of representatives from southeastern institutions to discuss
     successful and innovative strategies for incorporating collections
     care into fundraising activities.

     This workshop is designed for librarians, archivists and museum
     professionals responsible for, or interested in, incorporating
     collections care into their fundraising activities.
