Healthcare Philanthropy: The primary healthcare philanthropy report is generated by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. The Report on Giving provides key health care philanthropy industry benchmarks including total funds raised (cash and production), return on investment (ROI) and cost to raise a dollar (CTRD), as well as industry trends and performance comparisons based on institution type, number of FTEs and sources of funds raised. AHP member organizations participate in the survey which informs healthcare philanthropy leaders and professionals. Some highlights of the report are described below. (Please see AHP’s Report on Giving page for information regarding the full report.)

More than eight out of ten institutions employed seven or more full-time equivalent direct fundraising staff. Read more >>
