About Us

GOBEL is the #1 consulting and technology firm working exclusively in healthcare philanthropy. No firm works with more hospitals, has more healthcare philanthropy consultants, has as much collective experience, provides as many innovative solutions, or delivers as much return on investment. We believe healthcare philanthropy is different from other non-profit fundraising sectors. It is why healthcare is all we do.  

What We Believe

Giving back is much more than a financial transaction—it’s a transformational experience. For patients and families, their gratitude is inspired by the care and compassion clinicians provide for themselves or their loved ones.

Extraordinary care leads to gratitude and that gratitude leads to better health. Better health produces giving which creates happiness and that happiness in turn leads to healing behaviors. The shift from a focus on wealth to a focus on gratitude, makes a huge difference in health, wellness, and relationship building.

Over 40 clinical studies support the connection between giving and healing. Learn more about these studies in our white paper Understanding Gratitude: The Connection Between Healing and Philanthropy, co-authored by Robert A. Emmons Ph. D., the world’s leading scientific expert on gratitude.

Giving is a natural extension of the clinical experience. While donors give when they are grateful for exceptional care, clinicians have a responsibility as healers to be involved in the philanthropic process. Grateful patients and families represent significant, untapped potential.


Our team of 65 seasoned healthcare development professionals and clinicians comes from the top medical centers in the nation. They bring more than 750 years of collective healthcare philanthropy experience to their client engagements and have worked with over 1,000 hospitals and health systems in their history.
