The Fundamentals of Healthcare Development


This fast-paced, one-day, fundamental workshop focuses on the basic elements of healthcare philanthropy and the role of development in a healthcare organization. This workshop reviews major areas of healthcare development, including: major, planned, and annual giving; capital campaigns; policies; finance; marketing; and many other topics. The workshop is highly recommended for those new to healthcare development (with less than five years experience) and for support staff and board members who need to understand the elements of health care development. 

The course fee includes the all-day workshop, the AHP Primer coursebook, and a continental breakfast and lunch.


The Development Primer will be offered in 2020 at Convene Canada and at the International Conference.
