Helping public libraries advance their work through collective learning and peer-to-peer sharing.

About the Conference

The International Public Library Fundraising Conference (IPLFC) is a free conference for public library development professionals. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get together to explore common areas of interest, network with others who successfully raise money for their libraries and hear from other fundraising experts.

Each conference offers an information-packed agenda with sessions that covered important fundraising topics, such as effective direct mail and digital fundraising strategies, proper messaging in today’s political climate, how to turn fundraising challenges into successes, and much more.

IPLFC 2019 – the third annual conference – was recently held July 28-30 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada at The Calgary Central Library. Learn more about IPLFC 2019. IPLFC 2017 occurred in Seattle, Washington and IPLFC 2018 was in Denver, Colorado.
