One of the biggest challenges in moving ahead with collections care projects can be finding adequate funding. Donors, board members, and even your own development staff often see collections care as less than compelling. The speakers in this webinar have achieved success in raising funds for collections care, both on behalf of their own organizations and for others. Debbie Hess Norris will demonstrate how enthusiasm in making the case, coupled with a rich understanding of the stories behind your collections, can yield success in fund-raising. Lee Price will discuss strategies for successful grant applications.
