SESSION 303 - Access to Funds Means Access to Archives: How Raising Private Money Works

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will sharpen archivists’ skills in fundraising so that we can obtain monies that ensure access and success. We can be outstanding in obtaining private funds because we know how to get collections of papers. These skills are like the skills needed to obtain financial donations. Attendees hear from a state archivist, a university development officer, and a records manager who work to ensure that access to archives continues through raising private funds.
