Fundraising with Limited Resources
Fundraising Strategies for Presses with Limited Resources
In a roundtable format, directors from midsize and small presses will discuss their development and fundraising strategies. They will discuss their successes along with their failures. Issues will include fundraising with limited financial resources, the amount of money needed to be a successful fundraiser; staffing requirements; and working (or not) with the university’s development or foundation office. With limited resources, where should fundraising efforts be focused—on estate planning, large gifts, small individual gifts, endowments, individual book subsidies, or subventions for series? Audience participation will be encouraged so that a wide variety of development and fundraising strategies can be discussed.
