Visualizing Funding for Libraries: You've Gathered the Data, Now What?

In this webinar, learn how to generate a viable list of potential funders using the dynamic and freely available data-visualization tool, Visualizing Funding for Libraries.

This event has passed.

In 2017, the Visualizing (and Finding!) Funding for Libraries webinar introduced you to a dynamic and freely available data-visualization tool that enables library professionals and supporters to search for institutional funding for libraries at national, state and local levels. This webinar will re-familiarize you with the tool and then explore how to take the next steps with your data visualizations. Presenters will connect key data findings from the tool to national trends in philanthropic support for libraries. Using the tool to leverage networks and relationships, learn how to generate a viable list of potential funders to research further in order to determine the right fit for your library. You’ll also learn the action steps to take after identifying a funding prospect that will get your proposal to the top of the pile.

Presented by: Kate Tkacik, Director of Network Engagement, the Foundation Center (now Candid); and Ellen Jacks, Grants and Reference Librarian at University of Wisconsin-Madison
