The Burlington Public Library seeks proposals from qualified consultants to conduct a fundraising feasibility study towards the development of an upgraded, modern library. After a recent master planning project, the Board has established a goal of replacing the 1987 library addition with a larger two-story addition that will more fully integrate with the neighboring Wehmhoff Square Park and preserve the original landmark 1917 post office building that forms the core of the library facility.
This fundraising study should determine how much capital can realistically be raised for this project, and in what duration of time. Additionally, the study will identify potential partners, or partnership strategies, challenging, lending and finance options, and other issues or roadblocks for the organization to consider. Finally, the consultant would develop a plan outlining the cost of ongoing campaign counsel as the project moves forward.
