Fundraising + Marketing = Library Sustainability


Welcome!  I’m Pat Brigham, the Director of Development at Westchester Library System and I have created this site to share information and resources to help libraries build successful fundraising and advocacy programs. You’ll find a variety of resources here, on grant writing,  fundraising, marketing and best practices  drawn from  over 20 years of experience in this field.  But most importantly it is a place where I encourage you to ask questions (anything related to marketing and fundraising – this a a no-judgement zone), and to share your own success with your colleagues.  Always feel free to call me at 914-231-3241 or email me at
