For Immediate Release
Library to Host Fundraising Workshops for Nonprofits
Knox County Public LibraryMay 22, 2013 - Knox County Public Library will host a free workshop on grant-seeking for nonprofit organizations on Saturday, June 8, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Lawson McGhee Library, 500 W. Church Ave. The session will be led by Kief Schladweiler, Coordinator of Cooperating Collections with the Foundation Center. Mr. Schladweiler will highlight the electronic and print resources available for your free use at the Knox County Public Library, a Cooperating Collection of the Foundation Center.

The training will serve as an introduction to fundraising planning. A successful nonprofit organization has diversified funding streams. It is designed specifically for organizations that have never developed a fundraising plan or calendar. It provides an overview of the process of strategically thinking through the components of a fundraising plan. Participants will learn how to:

  • Take stock of your organization's strengths and assets
  • Develop a case statement
  • Set fundraising goals
  • Identify funding partners
  • Prepare a fundraising plan and calendar.
  • Introduction to Finding Funders

    Additionally, the program provides an introduction to the Foundation Center's comprehensive online database, Foundation Directory Online Professional. Learn how to create customized searches to develop targeted lists of foundations that will match your organization's funding needs. We will explore Power Search, which allows you to search across nine Foundation Center databases - grantmakers, grants, companies, 990s, news, jobs, RFPs, nonprofit literature, and PubHub reports.

    The workshop is free, but space is limited. To register, call 865-215-8753 or 865-215-8700, or email cmoirai@knoxlib.org by June 7, 2013.
