Healthcare Fundraising Shows Signs of Life

Healthcare fundraising recovered somewhat in 2010, but not enough to erase two years of recession-related losses and cutbacks, a new Association for Healthcare Philanthropy survey shows.

While 71% of AHP members who answered a January survey reported lingering negative effects on their programs in 2010 from the recession, the responses showed a 16% improvement over 2009. Year-over-year advances were noted for investment income, donations from hospital staff, and funds raised in special events, the survey found.
