Our strengths give us the strategic edge in service delivery and explain why some of the most reputable names in health philanthropy work with us.

  • Hospital Foundation Mergers, Post-Merger Integration, and Other Forms of Strategic Restructuring

  • Campaign Planning, Direction & Oversight
    Traditional hospital and health organization capital campaigns are quickly evolving.  Health nonprofits must rethink typical approaches to existing fundraising programs, be more efficient with resource deployment and develop more flexible capital campaign strategies. We work with our clients to ensure that the key elements for campaign success are in place. (Click for more info.)
  • Strategic Planning & Design
    The world of health care is transforming rapidly, the reliance on philanthropy continues to intensify, and some health organizations strategic plans remain in flux as reform-related imperatives get in the way of setting priorities and long-term decision making.  We specialize in helping our clients find organizational agility and flexibility to deal with rapidly changing health developments and we help develop and operationalize their fundraising strategies.

  • Grateful Patient and Physician Engagement for Fundraising Results
    Almost 90% of funds raised at hospitals, health systems or medical centers come from grateful patients who are referred by their physicians and approached by development officers.  We believe a compelling grateful patient program and active physician involvement is critical for filling prospect pipelines and building fundraising success.  (Click for more info.)
  • Collaborative Fundraising Among University Health Science Colleges
    The opportunity for larger philanthropic investments mandate that health science colleges at leading universities work collaboratively to maximize philanthropic investment.  We specialize in encouraging faculty leadership to identify collaborative opportunities and shape a cooperative agenda for proactive, interdisciplinary health education fundraising.  (Click for more info.)
  • Fundraising Audits & Development Assessments
    Our clients have used us to conduct focused development audits to assess their current fundraising strengths and weaknesses, and consider where fundraising capacity can be enlarged.   We use the fundamental principles of fundraising and organizational development to create personalized strategies and action plans to maximize results.

  • Employee Campaigns at Hospitals
    Hospitals are often among a community’s largest employers.  Indeed, many hospitals are far larger than local governments – in spending and in employees. As such, hospital and health system employee campaigns can be very effective at raising significant dollars by giving employees the chance to make a contribution.  We show you approaches to give each staff member important ways to participate in hospital philanthropy.
