These efforts include identifying prospects, leading all aspects of development including major gifts, corporate and foundation relations, online giving, planned giving and events. The CPO will implement best practice fundraising systems. A successful capital campaign will culminate at the end of 2021 providing opportunity for continued momentum, growth and donor cultivation.
In this role, the CPO serves as an integral member of the medical center’s leadership team, working closely and collaboratively with the Chief Executive of Providence Northwest Washington, the Foundation Board, staff, and patients to ensure the fundraising strategy is aligned with the organization’s mission, goals and priorities.
