Einstein Healthcare Network has been recognized by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy’s as a High Performer for 2018.

The Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) has recognized 54 U.S. and 10 Canadian development organizations as high-performing fundraisers in the health care industry for fiscal year 2017. These organizations are primarily foundations affiliated with nonprofit hospitals or health systems and were surveyed for AHP’s 2018 Report on Giving, which provides key industry benchmarks for health care fundraisers. The full list is available at www.ahp.org/highperformers.

High performers are defined in the report as those organizations who represent the top 25 percent in net fundraising returns out of all responding institutions. This means they raised more than $12.4 million in the U.S. and more than $14 million in Canada and represented a median of $27.29 million in the U.S. and $19.61 million in Canada in net fundraising returns.

“We are honored to recognize this group of remarkable organizations and their deep commitment to philanthropy,” said Alice Ayres, president and CEO of AHP. “Their results are exemplary – they are delivering an average of $5.50 for every dollar invested in philanthropy, strengthening the relationship their organizations have with their community and safeguarding the future health of people across the U.S. and Canada.”

“Einstein is fortunate to have dedicated donors who believe in and support Einstein’s mission of healthcare delivery and we take very seriously our job to be good stewards of their funds and to be sure we are doing the most to impact the health and wellness of those who need it most,” says Carol Parlin Prushan, Vice President and Chief Development Officer for Einstein Healthcare Network.“All of those who work in fundraising, especially healthcare fundraising, know it is a constant challenge to raise dollars to support the growing healthcare needs of the communities we serve.”

A total of 210 U.S. and 34 Canadian institutions submitted data on their fiscal year 2017 philanthropic activities, with response rates of 23.6 and 25.4 percent, respectively.
