Endowments as a Source of Library Funds.
Kane, Frederick A.
To obtain private endowments as a source of library funds the following needs to be done: (1) work hard with a definite goal in view; (2) plan a course of action; (3) contact those individuals whom investigations show may help; (4) search out help from newspapers, banks, radio and television stations; (5) consider the employment of a full time employee to search out money, federal, state and private and (6) constantly follow-up leads and prepare new avenues of approach. Another important road to endowments as a source of library funds is corporate entities. Most of the larger corporations have set up foundations for a variety of purposes and this information is readily available. There is plenty of room for growth but you have to water the plant and keep it growing. The best public relations are the aggregate of many tremendous trifles. (NH)
