Philanthropy more important than ever in health care

October 27, 2022FeaturedOur Stories

Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation works with Presbyterian leadership to identify the areas of greatest need—and greatest opportunity.

"Philanthropy has never been more important to healthcare. There is no question it will play a bigger role," Rick Scott, president of the Foundation told Modern Healthcare. "Historically in our world, philanthropy has been viewed as nice to have. We are pivoting to reinforce it as a must-have."

That approach focuses on three pillars—our people, our community and our patients—and is closely aligned to Presbyterian’s purpose as an organization.

In recent years, the Foundation has focused more than ever on funding capital and other in-budget items, which donors appreciate because they can see an immediate impact from their contributions and typically want to support the organization’s highest priorities.

Scott is grateful for the generous support of our community during the pandemic. Donations have increased in recent years and he hopes to double donations in the next five years.
