Philanthropic Giving for Health Care Slows in 2006 in both U.S. and Canada, According to Association for Healthcare Philanthropy's Annual 'Report on Giving'
Date:10/22/2007

ions, other than corporate, contributed 9.7 percent in 2006, compared to 3.5 percent in 2005. The "other sources" category of givers in Canada accounted for approximately 13 percent of the 2006 total. It was about 10 percent of the total in 2005.

In assessing the state of philanthropic giving for health care, AHP Board Chair Laura Rehrmann, FAHP, said, "Even though the Nation faces an uncertain economy, domestic terrorist threats, and increased deficit funding on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Americans continue to dig deep into their wallets to fund essential health care services, state-of-the-art medical technology, and access to the best medical personnel to deliver the most comprehensive care possible."

AHP Canada Regional Director Linda Saunders, CFRE, added, "Although not increasing as much as in past years, Canadian charitable health care contributions are still being donated at a level which will make a difference in people's lives every day. The report bears this out in the fact that over half of the funds raised in Canada were from individual givers."

According to AHP CEO McGinly, many association members are turning to a new program, the AHP Performance Benchmarking Service, "to prepare for future challenges and to better achieve the most efficient return on each dollar donated." The AHP benchmarking program uses data collected from participating institutions to help them grow philanthropy programs, improve financial planning, and evaluate human resources.

Almost 300 institutions participated in the survey for the 2006 AHP Report on Giving, which is intended to show national trends in the U.S. and Canada and relate these trends, where applicable, to the changing health care environment. A summary of the report is posted at http://www.ahp.org. The complete report is available by contacting Kathy Renzetti at (703) 532-6243 or via e-mail at Kathy@ahp.
