June 2012 — The Library Company of Philadelphia has retained Schultz & Williams (S&W) to provide strategic and campaign planning services over the next several months.
In this partnership, S&W will lead a three-phase strategic planning process that will result in a sustainable strategic plan to support the Library Company’s mission and vision, as well as include goals, implementation strategies, timelines and measurable outcomes for the organization.
In comparison to the strategic planning process, S&W’s role in the campaign planning study will be to utilize its expertise to assess the Library Company’s campaign potential and recommend the best way to approach their fundraising efforts in the years to come.
The Library Company of Philadelphia was founded in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin and is America’s first successful lending library and oldest cultural institution. An important piece of the Library’s legacy includes its role as the Library of Congress from the Revolutionary War to 1800. Today, it is an independent research library specializing in American history and culture from the 17th through the 19th centuries, and houses an extensive collection of rare books, manuscripts, prints, photographs, works of art and more.
“We are happy to provide these two important services to The Library Company of Philadelphia,” said Scott Schultz, president of Schultz & Williams. “Our expertise in and integrated approach to strategic and campaign planning will, without a doubt, serve our client well.”
