Who We Are
The Gobel Group is the leading consulting firm working exclusively in healthcare philanthropy. We are the experts in helping clients build stronger partnerships with physicians and nurses.
Our Grateful Patient with Clinician Engagement Program will train your clinician champions to (1) identify the best prospects, (2) introduce those prospects to you, and (3) become involved in the philanthropic process. The result is a better pipeline with more prospects, higher productivity for your gift officers with more visits, asks and gifts closed, and more philanthropic revenue for your program. Clients who implement our program and work with us over a three year period of time have generated a 10:1 to 30:1 return on investment.

Our consultants, who collectively bring more than 200 years of healthcare development experience, have led programs that have raised hundreds of millions annually and directed billion dollar campaigns.
What We Believe
Gratitude Motivates Giving. Giving Promotes Healing. Clinicians are Key.
Gratitude Motivates Giving. When a patient or family gives back, it’s not a financial transaction as most hospital employees would believe; rather, it’s a transformational experience for the patient and family that is inspired by the care and compassion clinicians have provided. As a result, patients and families are grateful. It’s this gratitude that motivates philanthropy.
Giving Promotes Healing. After years of research, Gobel Group has identified clinical studies that demonstrate the relationship between giving and healing, and the consequences to patients when they are denied the opportunity to give back. Giving is a natural extension of the clinical experience. Gobel Group shows clinicians they have a responsibility as healers to be involved in the philanthropic process.
Clinicians are Key. Donors don’t give because of hospitals or even programs. They give to honor of the individuals who were instrumental in their care. Grateful patients represent a significant and untapped potential. By building meaningful partnerships with clinicians, philanthropy offices can maximize their results.
