The OSF HealthCare Foundation based in Peoria, Illinois, has been included in the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) 2019 High Performer’s list.

AHP recognized 74 U.S. and 10 Canadian philanthropic organizations as high-performing fundraisers in the healthcare industry for fiscal year 2018. These organizations are primarily foundations affiliated with nonprofit hospitals or health systems that were surveyed for AHP’s 2019 Report on Giving, which provides key industry benchmarks for healthcare fundraisers.

High performers are defined as those organizations who represent the top 25% in net fundraising returns for a given category. Overall, this group raised more than $16 million in the U.S. and more than $10 million in Canada.

This year, the AHP also recognized those organizations representing the top 25 percent in net fundraising returns per each entity type they reported for, including systems, community hospitals, and teaching hospitals.
