40 Healthcare Fundraisers Highlighted For Leadership

Forty healthcare fundraisers younger than age 40 are to be honored by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) as part of the annual 40 Under 40 program.

The 40 Under 40 program is designed to recognize the future leaders within the health care philanthropy community. AHP is honoring the 40 young professionals because they are shaping the future of the health care development industry. Collectively, they are changing the world—one campaign at a time, according to AHP.

“These honorees are part of a select group of health care philanthropy professionals who have demonstrated impressive career achievements, deep community involvement and the potential to be a leader in our profession for years to come,” said Alice Ayres, AHP president & CEO. 

Nominees must be employed in the healthcare development industry. They should be established professional leaders with a strong record of innovation and outstanding performance. Multiple nominees from the same organization can be submitted. Nominees are not required to be current members of AHP.

The 40 winners will be recognized at the 2019 AHP Annual International Conference October 23-26 in Washington, D.C. Recognition events will include an invitation-only breakfast and award dinner on Thursday, October 24, during the conference.

“I am excited to celebrate their achievements in Washington, D.C. at AHP’s International Conference,” Ayres said. “Congratulations to them all.”
