Benchmark Generator

New data available: Philanthropy Performance Benchmark Generator

    The Philanthropy Performance Benchmark Generator is an interactive tool for health care development leaders to assess performance relative to peer organizations and the industry writ large.

    The tool features multiple data views including single-year performance, three-year trended performance, and three-year performance averages.

    Benchmarks include:

    • Production: Total dollars raised, average gift size, total value of five largest gifts
    • Efficiency: Return on investment, cost-to-raise-a-dollar
    • Staffing: FTE levels by role type, ratio of frontline to non-frontline FTEs, funds raised per FTE
    • Impact: Philanthropy impact on hospital net margin, total philanthropic spending

    The Philanthropy Performance Benchmark Generator has been updated with FY2020 data. The updated tool includes the following new-in-kind metrics: Funds raised for Covid-19 relief (% of total dollars raised), total number of unique donors, number of gifts per donor, and first time donors (% of total unique donors).
