The 26th Annual Symposium will explore...
Effective fundraising requires a commitment to building deep relationships, creating trust between donor and organization, and maintaining integrity. How do we define or redefine donor relationships in this world of change? Does it vary by generation?
“Community” no longer means what it meant even a decade ago; today it reaches far beyond local geographic borders and is more likely to be defined by our own interests and choices. How does an expanded definition of community affect fundraising?
We all interact with our communities through a variety of networks which continue to rapidly evolve and shift. Will the latest technology and social media redefine how fundraisers work with donors?
Henry A. Rosso Medal Recipients
Since 1990, the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy has honored outstanding individuals with the Henry A. Rosso Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Ethical Fundraising. The award is named in honor of Hank Rosso (1917–1999), a founder of the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University and founding director of The Fund Raising School.
This tribute was first presented to Mr. Rosso for his work in establishing a means for fundraising professionals to learn about ethical philanthropic fundraising and for creating concepts of discipline and dignity in the profession. His teaching inspired generations of fundraisers, and his books are still considered the handbooks for fundraising professionals. In presenting the Rosso Medal, the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy strives to encourage ethical fundraising and to recognize those whose contributions have benefi ted the profession immeasurably. The 2013 Rosso Medal will be awarded to Dwight F. Burlingame, Kay Sprinkel Grace, and Raymond L. Handlan.
