Finding Success in Grateful Patient Fundraising

It Lies Beyond Gratitude™

Webinar Description

The vast majority of grateful patient and family programs focus on gratitude as the key element to identifying prospective donors. While gratitude is a wonderful thing, it is not the philanthropic key that many believe it to be.

In this 1-hour webinar recording, Graham-Pelton President Walt Edwards will share valuable insights to help you identify those who desire to make philanthropy part of the healing process, rather than simply express thanks. This webinar recording is a must-watch for healthcare philanthropy professionals at all levels — from those new in the field to mid-career development practitioners, and even experienced leaders.

This webinar originally took place in June 2023 and was presented in partnership with the New England Association for Healthcare Philanthropy.

  • The signs and signals that indicate a desire to give back
