Request for Proposals for Fundraising Study


The Huntingdon Valley Library (HVL) is requesting submissions from fundraising consultants interested in managing a Capital Campaign to raise funds to renovate the library. The Board of Trustees has set a goal of raising at least $2 million from private sources, with the balance of the construction cost to be funded through other sources.

The proposal should determine how much capital can realistically be raised and in what duration of time. Additionally, the proposal will need to specify procedures needed to identify potential partners, as well as strategies to develop comprehensive donor lists, challenges to carrying out a successful campaign, and other issues or potential roadblocks the Board of Trustees needs to consider. Finally, the proposal needs to outline the steps the consultant will take to guide the Huntingdon Valley Library’s Board of Trustees through the process of conducting a successful campaign.
