Get Involved in Something Terrific for Ohio’s Healthcare Fundraisers!

By Bill Mountcastle,


teamHey Ohio Healthcare Fundraising Professionals!

  • Are you interested in strengthening your network?
  • Do you want to further your career and make new friends?
  • Are you looking for information about Ohio’s health care philanthropy?

The Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (OAHP) serves fundraising professionals, board members, and volunteers in the healthcare industry.

Here are my top eight reasons for joining the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy:

  • Broaden your knowledge: OAHP offers educational webinars and hosts an annual conference to keep its members up to date on the latest healthcare fundraising industry innovations, research and trends. You can take part in practical, industry-relevant training, or send your hospital’s fundraising team for training.
  • Show dedication to your profession: Connecting with other healthcare fundraising professionals creates a rich and diverse professional community for you. And being dedicated to your craft is impressive to current or future employers.
  • Enhance your network: Creating professional relationships is important. Making connections is critical to professional growth. Joining OAHP gives you countless opportunities to connect on a regional and statewide level with leaders who can support and help you reach your professional goals.
  • Be a leader: OAHP gives you an opportunity to develop your skills as a leader, and this is important not only for your personal growth, but for your growth in your organization.
  • Become a mentor: Giving back can be the greatest reward and benefit. Participating in conference planning, committee work, or forum organizing sponsored by OAHP is a great way to grow your network. It allows you to use your peers as sounding boards and often make some great friends with the same interests as you.
  • Build professional confidence: OAHP gives you access to an established organization of experienced health philanthropy professionals who are motivated, like you, to get things done.
  • Save money: OAHP conferences and memberships are made affordable for Ohio healthcare organizations. Travel to conferences is easy and inexpensive. And, OAHP understands Ohio’s nonprofit health organizations vary in size, so it wants the benefits and services provided with membership to be very valuable and worth the dues you pay.
  • Stay Motivated and Inspired: OAHP membership gives you insight into how the industry works and how to navigate it. The benefits of joining Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy are numerous.

The Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy can enhance your personal and professional development and provide great networking opportunities.
