37 Officers from university advancement, as needed, e.g., for planned giving and bequests, annual giving, etc. On occasion and when fundraising impacts colleges and the library. For example, our archives and special collections have significance for the deans in the colleges of social sciences, and humanities, and languages & literatures. We collaborate on fundraising when appropriate. Only a handful of my colleagues work with me to secure gifts for both units. I feel I have to constantly make my case to be included as an option for support. Particularly our central gift officers and our planned giving officers are very collaborative. Planned giving officers Prospect identification, cultivation, and stewardship Some campus partnerships are in place. This is a growth area. Some development officers will speak on behalf of the libraries when the opportunity arises. We also share information. Some support the libraries themselves some also refer prospects who are interested in supporting the libraries Sometimes. Prospect managers may introduce UL to potential donors who have expressed interest in library. The college DOs do not but major gifts are managed by senior director of development & alumni affairs at the central development offices at the foundation. The development team assigned to the college of music helps us a bit on the side when they have time. That is the source of our .05 FTE. The director of development for planned giving has been working collaboratively with the director of development for the Libraries. He has recently secured an endowment gift that will provide discretionary support for the Libraries. They will direct potential donors to the library if appropriate. Travel together to meet donors with multiple interests. Also call on libraries for donors interested in school history. University regional major giving officers, university planned giving officers, university corporate and foundation officers We are actively building a more collaborative fundraising environment at the university. Most folks are willing to partner and we try our best to be supportive of each other’s areas. Joint visits are a common occurrence, as well as joint proposals. Additional comments N=3 Major gift (regional) development officers actively solicit gifts on behalf of Libraries. Results are not separately tracked. Overall the answer is no, however there is new leadership who is emphasizing collaboration so this may change. Currently, there are one or two colleges/units here on campus that are willing to collaborate and are supportive of libraries. Unsure
