Advancement Resources and the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy have observed that many Chief Philanthropy Officers (CPOs) and Chief Development Officers (CDOs), across various healthcare systems, often feel they are venturing into uncharted territory without adequate guidance when transitioning to their first leadership role. Consequently, we initiated a research project to delve deeper into this issue, aiming to foster a dialogue about potential solutions and enhanced support for current and future CPO/CDOs.
