2 New Reports Confirm Number of Fundraisers, Staff Retention Key to Raising More Dollars, AHP Says
AHP surveys its members annually. The large sample (335 surveys) of the AHP Report on Giving combined with the more in-depth smaller subset (45 surveys) of the Performance Benchmarking Service provided significant data in order for AHP to produce these two reports. The reports were sent to AHP members and are posted on the AHP website at www.ahp.org.
The Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, established in 1967, is the leading authority for standards, knowledge and leadership in health care development.

AHP members include fundraising professionals, development staff, public relations professionals, trustees, marketing specialists, administrators and executives interested in health care fundraising. The hospitals, health care systems and related facilities for which AHP members raise charitable funds provide essential, comprehensive medical services to their communities, as well as wellness programs, mobile health vans, mammography screenings, hearing and eye exams, and other community-based health care services.
