A library dedicated to books on fundraising has opened in Turin. The library’s inauguration took place on 7 June and is an initiative of the Italian Association of Fundraising's (ASSIF) Piemonte group, in collaboration with Turin’s Collegio Einaudi.
The library is based within Collegio Einaudi’s own library, which has handed over a section to ASSIF to be dedicated to fundraising. In the Piemonte region alone there are almost 35,000 non-profit organisations, and it is hoped that the library will become an important source of information for fundraising practitioners and will also demonstrate the potential of the discipline to others.
During the opening ceremony, attendees donated books to the collection, and the library is seeking further contributions to help it grow. Anyone who would like to participate is invited to send a book to Collegio Einaudi via Maria Vittoria, 29 – 10123 Turin – Italy.
