Hank" Rosso (1917-1999), a founder of the schools predecessor the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University and founding director of The Fund Raising School.
A faculty member for The Fund Raising School, she also is an adjunct professor at the University of San Francisco in the School of Education and the School of Management.
Mahoney said that she saw the Fund Raising School as a good place to help strengthen congregations of women but that the Lake Institute would be beneficial for providing a spiritual perspective.
Mahoney said the program was adapted from a successful program, Faith and Fundraising, established for Protestant congregations by Enright and Timothy Seiler, director of the Fund Raising School.
The Fund Raising School started offering courses online a couple of years ago.
In general, participants at The Fund Raising School are getting started in fundraising and want to learn the fundamentals, framework, principles and practices.
Course attendance at The Fund Raising School at the CoP dropped by almost a third after the recession hit, according to Seiler.
Approximately 1,250 participants go through The Fund Raising School courses on an annual basis, with another 1,500 to 2,000 for the contract courses.
