The Library WishList program lets you, or your Friends Group easily create an online catalog of fundraising and volunteer opportunities. Your patrons can browse the listings, make contributions, pay for an honorarium, signup and donate to your Friends Group or signup to volunteer.
Whatever you need for your library, post it on your WishList. If you need a hearing loop system for your meeting room, enter a description and explain why it’s needed. Include a photograph, and the estimated cost. Immediately your patrons can start making contributions at your website, or on Facebook. They can also see how many people have contributed, the total amount, and what is needed to complete the wish. Patrons can make contributions online using their credit card, debit card or PayPal account. It’s easy to get a payment account, and we’ll help you get started. Patrons who pay for an entire wish can turn the wish into an “in memory” honorarium, or “in honor” of a special person in their lives.
Do you need new books for your collection or used books for your book sale? Enter an ISBN number into the Wish List Program and instantly a listing will appear on your website and on Facebook. Your library is the cornerstone of your community and people are willing and happy to give, especially when they can see where their money is going. Every time they visit their library and see the new chairs, or the aquarium that they made a donation to help purchase, they’ll feel proud that they made a difference in their community.
Don’t wait until the “Budget Beast” comes knocking at your door. Let’s discuss your fundraising and volunteer efforts, and see how we can work together to reach your goals.
