Consultant Presents Fundraising Report to Appleton Public Library Board

$7M in private fundraising expected for library. (Appleton Post-Crescent, 9/17/2014)

Tapping into the Fox Cities strong philanthropic culture.
A Friends of Appleton Public Library consultant from Minnesota told the city's library board that in-person meetings with 28 people indicated the contribution target.
"Unilaterally, the library is viewed as a highly valued asset of the community," said Karen Rose, a consultant with St. Paul-based Library Strategies. "A surprise was that most of the people we interviewed regularly use the library. In many communities donors have the civic perspective, but not the personal tie."
The consultant sent private meeting invitations to 78 targeted donors and asked about their range of giving.
