Engaging Grateful Patients

2015_HealthcareFundraisingP

According to the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, donations from grateful patients now make up over 20% of total healthcare contributions. Giving has become an important way patients give thanks to caregivers for their quality care.

Raising funds from former patients requires significant coordination to increase results.  It also requires navigating privacy laws and coordinating data from an ever-changing donor base that continues to interact with you. Employing these strategies helps build a solid pipeline to identify major donors.

Check out our white paper to explore important healthcare philanthropy concerns and read best practices for raising funds in this constantly changing environment.
