    PRINCESS ANNE, MD - Kimberly Dumpson, Esquire, director of alumni affairs at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, recently earned a certificate in fund raising management from The Fund Raising School at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. 

    IndianaUniversity's Fund Raising School "promotes the highest standards in professional fundraising and the body of knowledge informing philanthropic tradition."  The certificate in fund raising management is awarded after successful completion of the following four key courses: Principles and Techniques of Fund Raising, Planned Giving: Getting the Proper Start, Developing Major Gifts and Interpersonal Communications for Fundraising. 

    "I will use the knowledge and skills I've learned from the Indiana University program to support efforts spearheaded by the UMES Division of Institutional Advancement to raise $14 million for the University's Campaign for Academic Excellence," said Dumpson.

    The Fund Raising School is the only international fundraising education program housed within a university.  It helps thousands each year to develop more fully as fund raising professionals.
