Philanthropy’s 2016 National Meeting Recap

About this Series

Individuals and employers have an increasing ability to choose where and how they purchase their health care. To compete for their loyalty, health system and hospital leaders are investing new energy and and resources into consumer-oriented strategies. At the same time, the broader nonprofit sector is becoming more nimble and innovative in their interactions with donors. Unfortunately, many development teams are not ready to execute on donor-centric initiatives because strategies outside major gifts are largely based on outdated functional approaches.
