Fundraising Committee – September 2018 Report

The group met 1 time this quarter.

Recent Activities

First Activity
As a brand-new committee, we had our kickoff meeting on October 23. We brainstormed goals this committee could have, which we will be finalizing soon-ish. Possibilities include:

* self-education (only one of us has significant development experience)
* lists – calendar events, sponsors, contacts, sponsorship opportunities
* generating communication materials Jenny can easily use, especially visual ones for social media
* strategy
Meets LITA’s strategic goals for Organizational Stability and Sustainability

What will your group be working on for the next three months?
Obviously we can’t implement all the things we brainstormed, so our next goal is narrowing our focus and selecting top priorities for the year. Our choices there will guide our next steps.

Is there anything LITA could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?
We’re good so far! I think it’s likely we’ll want to meet with ALA’s development director at some point so we may want help setting that up.

Please provide suggestions for future education topics, initiatives, publications, resources, or other activities that could be developed based on your group’s work.
I expect we will be developing primarily tools for internal use, supporting content or activities produced by others. We may at some point run some kind of fundraising campaign, but we are not really a content-generating entity.
