The AABC (Archives Association of British Columbia) is pleased to partner with the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC to present our 4th webcast roundtable on “Outreach, Fundraising, and Donor Relationships”.
Building and maintaining donor relationships is a key aspect of daily archival work for many organizations. This can happen through simple outreach activities or grand fundraising events that shine attention on our archival treasures and our need for funding to preserve them.
Topics discussed include:
- What building blocks need to be in place to foster strong relationships with donors?
- How can we leverage our time and (sometimes limited) resources to manage a successful outreach program?
- What are the steps to a solid fundraising strategy?
- How to nurture a positive “Friends of the Archives” partnership
This event took place on February 26, Friday 2016.
