We are highlighting two stories this week in the FLiP News Digest.
The first is an interview with Elizabeth Dale, who was recently appointed Vice President for Institutional Advancement of Drexel University in Philadelphia. As Drexel gears up for a capital campaign, Ms. Dale has been asked to provide an assessment of the school’s fundraising capability. The Triangle, The Drexel Student Newspaper, talked to Ms. Dale about why students should be involved in a capital campaign. What do you think – should students serve on a campaign committee?
Our second story is an exciting development in philanthropy education. Indiana University’s School of Philanthropy has staffed the country’s first endowed chair in fundraising. Adrian Sargeant, an expert in fundraising from England, has been named to the Robert F. Hartsook Chair in Fundraising at Indiana University. More evidence of philanthropy in the mainstream!
