EveryLibrary, the first nation-wide Political Action Committee for libraries, today announces a new fundraising partnership with BulldogFinance Group (BFG), a Washington, D.C. based political fundraising consultancy focused on progressive causes and candidates, to begin outreach to the public in support of libraries at the ballot box. ”BFG is uniquely qualified to help EveryLibrary identify potential donors who recognize that strong libraries are key to strong communities and who believe that libraries change lives for the better,” says John Chrastka, Executive Director for EveryLibrary. ”This fundraising support will help us reach a funding level that allows us to conduct effective voter outreach and advocacy for libraries across the country.” EveryLibrary is dedicated to helping local library ballot committees and PACs with campaign consultancy and funding to support effective voter outreach and run successful campaigns for bonds, millages, levies, and other referendum.
