Image of Fred NajjarIt is with tremendous joy and great pride that I announce that collectively you raised $150.1 million this year to support our ministry. These results are record-breaking and far surpass last year’s fundraising efforts by $33.5 million. Our system-wide cost per dollar raised was $0.28—this is extremely efficient in the health care fundraising field and means that for every dollar spent, approximately $3.50 was returned. 

You all are putting in the work to be thoughtful stewards of funds raised. One key metric to note was that net fundraising dollars increased to $108.1 million, compared to fiscal year 2017’s $72.1 million, and was $29.4 million more than budgeted. Read more »
