Elevate health and well-being.
We are founded in relationship-based philanthropy, governance and community partnership.
First, our thinking. We believe health care has the greatest ability to improve the lives of people and impact communities, and philanthropy fuels the ability to succeed.
Second, our team. Each member of our team has more than 20 years of experience. Not as consultants, but as Chief Philanthropy Officers, Major Gift Officers, Planned Giving Officers and more. No other firm understands your challenges like we do.
Third, our approach. We created the Transformative Philanthropy™ model which holistically addresses the most important levers to performance. We have also pioneered tools and processes to align and engage teams, leadership and boards to ensure the best possible outcomes.
The team at Accordant elevated our vision and helped us build our team through strong strategic insight, programmatic expertise and leadership development. Through feasibility to campaign planning and launch, they helped us build a centralized support team – expanding us from one system employee to a team of 12 in just three years – while also ensuring that fundraising and impact remain local at our nine hospitals. Our philanthropy program has faced exponential growth in infrastructure since 2019 with an overall team of 37 staff members, while also experiencing increases in fundraising success – growing from an average of $8 million per year to more than $25 million in our most recent fiscal year.
