Looking for a streamlined way to connect big donors with your library? An endowment fund provides community members with a clear opportunity to make a long-term investment in your library. This workshop will explain the ins and outs of setting up an endowment fund for your library using a local community foundation. Representatives from two libraries that currently have funds with their local community foundation will join us to share their experience.

This workshop is appropriate for library administrators, trustees and Friends from any size library, and will be facilitated by Rebekkah Smith Aldrich from MHLS with Andrea Reynolds and David Ringwood of the Community Foundation of Dutchess County.

The workshop will cover:
·Endowment basics
