Philanthropic support for the missions of UF Health is increasingly important. Faculty endowments, research funds, patient care initiatives and capital projects have all benefited from gifts made by UF Health patients who had a positive experience with faculty and staff.
The UF Health Office of Development hopes to expand upon this avenue of fundraising through a seminar series that is intended to help physicians and caregivers identify grateful patients and successfully refer them to the Development team.
The Power of Patient Gratitude is a curriculum being created by the UF Health Office of Development. It will help us embrace the special attributes of our academic health center and show how everyone can play a part in helping grateful patients express their thanks for excellent care through philanthropy. Envisioned as a seminar series with customized delivery, The Power of Patient Gratitude will be unveiled to a pilot group soon.
