Pat Moline


PatMoline - CopyPatricia M. Moline, CFRE, CFP®a Certified Fundraising Executive and a Certified Financial Planner, started in fundraising after realizing that it’s tough to make a decent living as an opera singer.   She has appeared on the nonprofit “stage” in higher education fundraising for more than 20 years.

Pat began her tenure as associate vice chancellor for development and alumni relations at SIU in April 2013.  She previously led a five-campus team of fundraisers as Vice President of Development for the Oklahoma State University Foundation, publicly launching the $1 billion Branding Success Campaign in February 2010.  Prior, Pat held a variety of key positions over her 11-year tenure at the Iowa State University Foundation.  She directed ISUF’s Woman and Philanthropy program – a nationally recognized program of excellence that continues to be a model for many organizations. She continues to present in this area and helped develop The Fundraising School at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University’s course Dynamics of Women’s Giving.

A sought-after speaker, Pat frequently presents at various national, international, and regional fundraising conferences on a variety of topics suited to both fundraising professionals and donors.  She is an Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Master Teacher – one of the first 50 individuals to be recognized by AFP — and has presented at six AFP International Conferences and various regional CASE (Counsel for Advancement and Support of Education) conferences. She joined The Fundraising School at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University as adjunct faculty in 2008 and currently maintains that appointment.

Pat is a dangerous fundraiser who can craft creative giving plans and break boards and concrete blocks (she holds a second degree black belt in Taekwondo and is currently practicing towards her third degree).
