Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Palomar Health will be the health system of choice for patients, physicians, and employees, recognized nationally for the highest quality of clinical care and access to comprehensive services. The Palomar Health Foundation will work towards fulfilling Palomar Health's highest and most urgent needs.

Accomplishment of goals is to be achieved through an active and invested Board of Directors. Reaffirmation of goals and commitments by Board Members is done 1:1 with each member quarterly. Active participation in planning sessions with Hospital leadership also enables fundraising activities to be as nimble and metric centered as possible.

The Foundation underwent a 2015 organizational assessment by an nationally known outside consultant, the first since its inception in 1984. The right-sizing of personnel, job functions and reduction and/or elimination of gift processing redundancies has created a more streamlined system of cultivation, solicitation and stewardship to ensure donor relationships are valued, honored, recognized and renewed. During this organizational audit, the consultant indicated that our Employee Giving campaign was one of the most successful they had ever reviewed. More than 4,400 employees work for Palomar Health; and more than 80% of these employees give between $25 and $25,000 annually through payroll deductions.

In addition to tracking our fundraising progress against our own fundraising budget, expense and activity plans, philanthropic engagement and outcomes are reported in the Hospital's monthly and annual metric dashboard. For the next several years, the strongest indicators of our success will be increasing our average gift size, and growing our annual support program through the acquisition and renewal of gifts between $25 and $10,000 dollars.

A significant clean-up and re-code effort of our donor database has been ongoing for the past 12 months. This effort coupled with the recruiting a proficient outside consultant to help with large conversion/correction projects has been extremely productive. The reduction of duplicate records and focused research to verify older database information has produced a more robust system with more detailed giving trends, profiles and other analytical information.
