Grants and Fundraising

Grants and fundraising are increasingly important skills that all libraries need to master, to keep providing great materials and programs to your community.

But many of our members are solo library people, or already busy with all their other work, and struggle to find the time to find and create grants.

CMLE Headquarters is here to help! In this section, we provide you with some basic information about finding, writing, and administering grants.

We are also available to work with you as you work through the grant process. Use the contact form below to let us know about your grant interests, where you are in the process (“just thinking about it” is fine!), and what you want us to help you to do.

Do you have other questions, ideas, or suggestions about this topic now?? Just fill out the comment box below, and we will be ready to help you!
