Salt Lake City, Utah – Nov. 23, 2017 -- For the third consecutive year, Intermountain Foundation has been honored by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) for its exemplary performance in raising funds for its local communities’ health needs. Intermountain Foundation is one of only 51 organizations throughout North America recognized as a “High Performer,” based on analysis in the most recent AHP benchmarking database. High performers represent the top 25 percent of all reporting organizations. Each year, participating hospital foundations complete a survey that collects detailed information on organizational performance, including fundraising revenue, expenses, and details on specific fundraising programs and staff involvement.

AHP analyzes this submitted data and defines high performance as those organizations that are in the 75th percentile for net production. “To dignify the generous investments made through us, we continually strive to maintain Intermountain Foundation as a donor-centric, best-practice model, representing unique opportunities to impact lives within one of the finest health systems in the country,” said David Flood, Foundation President. “This designation confirms that we continue to make significant progress to inspire grateful patients and visionary donors to help drive Intermountain Healthcare’s efforts to transform healthcare."
