The Friends sponsor a variety of activities including book sales, children's programs, and author nights. Alameda Free Library Foundation The Alameda Free Library Foundation was founded in 1998 and is dedicated to establishing strong, private, on-going financial support for the library so that the library has sufficient funds for programs, materials, and equipment to meet the needs of our community. The Alameda Free Library Foundation has sponsored fundraising events, conducted an annual fundraising solicitation by mail, and received a large bequest from an estate. The Foundation has eleven board members, meets monthly, and has made two significant gifts to the Main Library thus far. The Foundation has begun a major fund drive named “Campaign for a Great Library”. The goal is $600,000 to be raised in the year prior to the opening of the new Main Library, which is scheduled for November 2, 2006.

Another will ask if you don't. Be professional and look professional. Be accountable - personally, and for your nonprofit. Be honest. Listen to your heart; it's more honest than your mind. Speak with conviction for your cause. Ten Rules Continued:  Ten Rules Continued If you can't, recruit someone who can. A prospect is simply a donor without motivation. You provide motivation. A donor is a fundraiser who has yet to share their conviction with a friend. Ask them to. A good fundraiser, then, is a friendly motivator. It's that simple. A successful fundraiser has thick skin, a soft heart, exceptional hearing, a quick mind, a slow tongue and no shame - at least when it comes to asking for a gift!
