Request for Proposal for Fundraising Consultant Services
Friends of the Cambridge Public Library

 

Purpose

The Friends of the Cambridge Public Library is seeking a fundraising consultant to plan and manage a fundraising campaign to raise a minimum of $1 million to help fund the cost of building a new public library in Cambridge. The first goal is to raise $250,000 by October 1, 2016.

Background

The Cambridge Public Library is one of 14 branches within the six county East Central Regional Library (ECRL) system. It is the only public library in Isanti County. The existing library building, located at 244 South Birch Street, Cambridge, MN, was constructed in 1960 with the addition of garage space in 1973 and more library and office space in 1974-75. The building houses the public library on the main level and the ECRL headquarters in the basement.

The City of Cambridge is proposing to construct a new building that would provide expanded space for the library and the ECRL headquarters all on one floor. The estimated cost for the 30,000 square foot building is $8.6 million. The city has submitted a request for $2 million in the Governor's budget for headquarters space. The November 8, 2016, election ballot will include a referendum for construction funding.

The Cambridge City Council appointed a Library Task Force (LTF) to assist in site selection, conceptual design, and planning for financing, fundraising, publicity and other needs. The task force includes representatives from the city and library staffs, the community, the Isanti County commissioners, and the Friends of the Library.

A site has been selected and the land for the building has been acquired by the city. The city contracted with SEH Architects and they have development a conceptual design and a 3D model of the proposed building.

The city has asked the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library (FCPL) to raise a minimum of $1 million toward the cost of the new building. The City Council has approved a draft Policy on Naming Rights and Recognition of Contributors.

The city contracted with Leo A. Daly to conduct a needs assessment for a new library and headquarters building. The results of that assessment are available here »
