Growth and a move

The Women’s Philanthropy Institute moved to the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy in 2004 and expanded its mission to include research as well as education. Dr. Debra Mesch joined WPI as director in 2008. WPI is the only such institute located in an academic and research institution dedicated to furthering the understanding of gender and philanthropy through research, education, and knowledge dissemination.
