Performance Benchmarking: The Industry Standard

No matter the size of your development program, data can be your strongest ally and most valuable asset. It can verify if your programs are headed in the right direction and where your team can make changes for greater success. Using data the right way also increases credibility with your C-suite, makes a compelling case to donors and sets clear expectations and goals for staff.

Benchmarking confirms where you’re on the right track and where there are areas of greatest opportunity by providing meaningful data to justify changes in strategy”

Get the Insight You Need

Each year, AHP surveys members and non-members alike to put together the most comprehensive charitable giving evaluation for health care philanthropy and fundraising.

Hospital foundations and foundation systems across the country participate in a short or long survey process. The results from these yearly disclosures are summarized in AHP’s Report on Giving. This report allows your organization to see consolidated industry benchmarks and match your performance against other hospitals in your country. AHP produces separate studies for Canada and the US.

Participate in the 2018 Report on Giving and Performance Benchmarking Database

We are currently accepting data for the 2018 Report on Giving. For AHP member institutions, participating in any form of the survey gives you a free copy of the Report on Giving. Institutions that are not members get a discounted copy of the Report on Giving.

Performance Benchmarking Database

Beyond the dozen items in the Report on Giving, AHP offers online access at two levels to a Performance Benchmarking database. You can access aggregated data about other hospitals and healthcare philanthropies to create comparisons using dozens of metrics. You can generate custom reports as you assess your program and make choices about investments.
