Beyond the scope of traditional consulting, the Strategic Partnerships approach to Referral-Based Medical Philanthropy helps healthcare organizations create a cohesive philanthropic culture at all levels. With varying levels of support available, organizations are able to select the partnership most appropriate for their needs and goals.  Our experienced Advancement Resources Strategic Partners come alongside development leaders at hospitals and health systems to investigate the culture, celebrate successes, propose solutions, and drive maximum results.


A true partnership with an experienced ally

We provide our clients with a dedicated, experienced Strategic Partner to support their success. Through a comprehensive discovery process guided by the Strategic Partner, we identify gaps and develop a plan to achieve long-term success. This process is aided by the support of various team members, including researchers, videographers, editors, facilitators, instructional designers, executive coaches, and support staff—all of whom collaborate to deliver customized educational sessions and resources to address the organization’s current and future needs. Finally, through one-on-one or small group working sessions with development leaders, we provided consistent and comprehensive milestone achievement reviews to ensure maximum benefit from the partnership.


Customizable levels of strategic support

Recognizing the varying levels of philanthropic engagement at each organization, we work with our clients to select the level of partnership that best suits their culture and needs. From executive consultation to comprehensive organizational assessments, we offer resources to complement the systems and processes already in place, in addition to assessing those existing systems and making recommendations to drive greater results.
