2-3 pm: Time for a Check-Up: Best Practices in Clinician Engagement

Physicians and Medical Chiefs play an absolutely crucial role in the success of grateful-patient philanthropy programs and the productivity of gift officers. But with more demands on clinicians than ever, and healthcare worker burnout at critical levels, have you optimized your approach to clinician engagement? Dr. Bruce Lytle, retired Chairman of the Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic, has raised hundreds of millions of philanthropic dollars, worked with countless development professionals and navigated through billion-dollar campaigns. In his usual direct, hold no punches, unfiltered and humorous style, Dr. Lytle will share the good, the bad and the ugly on his philanthropy experience and answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about working with physicians and chiefs.

Presenters: Dr. Bruce Lytle, Retired Chair, Heart and Vascular Institute, Cleveland Clinic

3-4pm: Raising Awareness Around Raising the Bar: Campaign Marketing

According to the 2021 AAMC Development Survey Report, 47% of responding institutions were currently in a major fundraising campaigns. If your institution isn’t already in one, chances are it will be in the near future. And the appetite among healthcare leaders to set big campaign goals has never been more present. Learn how Hackensack Meridian Health Foundation, currently in the quiet phase of a potential $1 billion campaign, is building a comprehensive, highly professional, marketing campaign to support its historic fundraising campaign to create a pathway to success.

Presenters: Jim Blazar, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer, Hackensack Meridian Health; Joyce P. Hendricks, President, Hackensack Meridian Health Foundation

4-5pm: Something Ventured, Everything Gained: Best Practices in Venture Philanthropy

Over the last decade, health care organizations have become an incubator for start-ups hungry for growth capital. At the same time, venture capital and private equity funds have raised historic amounts of money, looking for the next unicorn. And your institutional principal gift donor could very likely be an investor in one of the VC or PE funds. The convergence of the health care startups, private equity and philanthropic donors has paved the way for a new trend called Venture Philanthropy. But many variations of the VP concept exist. In some cases, donors are asked to invest, with part of the investment going to a philanthropic purpose and part going into an investment fund. Sometimes that fund is managed by a VC firm outside of the health system, sometimes it’s the health system’s own fund. Sometimes the money is focused on R&D by doctors and scientists inside the system; sometimes it’s for any investment in that outside fund. A panel of venture capitalists, investment officers and philanthropic leaders offer their guidance on how to make the most of this increasingly relevant approach to giving.
