2016 Health Philanthropy Summit 

Thank you to all who supported and attended the 2016 Health Philanthropy Summit at the Mount Carmel School of Nursing, held in conjunction with the Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. We think the Summit is an amazing opportunity to network and learn from some of today’s healthcare philanthropy leaders, but don’t just take our word for it…See what attendees had to say:

  •  "I thought that the summit was a great opportunity to learn from my peers in healthcare. So many other education opportunities are not healthcare focused and it was nice to hear about what others are doing in the field."
  • "The Summit exceeded my expectations!"
  • "The Summit offered great content and variety with practitioners sharing real life experiences."
  • "I gained great insight into approach others are trying to deal with our common challenges."
  • "I enjoyed the networking."

The Role of Nonprofit Executive Directors in Fundraising

Monday, November 27, 2017 10:00 am - 11:30 am  

In-person  | The Foundation Center New York


As an executive director, it is your responsibility to guide your organization and provide a vision for where it will be in the immediate future and the long term. You are also responsible for determining how your organization spends its money and generates financial support. Managing and raising funds effectively is critical to the sustainability of your organization. In tandem with a development director, board member, or other support staff, the executive director is typically tasked with creating and implementing a plan for successfully raising the funds needed. 

Bill Mountcastle will discuss the important role of the nonprofit executive director in fundraising, including the important role philanthropy plays in organizations and key motivations behind why people give at this special program at The Foundation Center New York. 

Workshop participants will learn how to: 

  • Develop fundraising expertise as an executive director
  • Build and sustain important donor relationships
  • Advance their work together with boards and fundraising staff
  • Invest in building fundraising capability
