Baylor University Poage Library

Putting the ‘fun' in Fundraising

On Tuesday, March 19, we welcomed our friend and colleague from the University of South Carolina, Herb Hartsook to the Poage Library. Mr. Hartsook is the director of South Carolina Political Collections and presented his workshop, Raising Private Monies for Archives and Museums.

We invited members of the Museum Association of Waco to join us for a day-long workshop held at the Armstrong Browning Library. Mr. Hartsook shared his 30 years of experience of fundraising in the library field. We had a great turn out for the workshop, welcoming many of our friends in the Waco and Baylor communities including the Martin Museum of Art, Texas Collection, Cameron Park Zoo, and the Dr Pepper Museum.

Participants from local museums and archives gather in the Armstrong Browning
Treasure Room to learn new ideas for fundraising from Herb Hartsook.
