Intermountain Foundation Named "High Performer" by Association of Healthcare Philanthropy
Salt Lake City, Utah, May 6, 2019
For the fourth 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 54 healthcare fundraising 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.
In the U.S., net fundraising revenue for high performers is nearly seven times higher than for all institutions reporting. Intermountain Foundation’s top performing net fundraising returns indicate that compared to other healthcare not-for-profit organizations, Intermountain Foundation raises significant funds from donors while maintaining low administrative costs.
“We are honored to again receive this distinction on behalf of our community members, donors, volunteer board members, and caregivers,” said David Flood, President of Intermountain Foundation and Senior VP, Chief Development Officer. “Their commitment and generosity fuel our Mission to help all people live the healthiest lives possible.”
