For the second year in a row, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) has named Sacred Heart Foundation a “High Performer.” The foundation is one of only 54 recognized as a “High Performer” based on analysis of a survey AHP conducted related to fiscal year (FY) 2017.

Each year, AHP identifies survey participants who have shown high efficiency and effectiveness as they relate to bottom-line returns. AHP recognizes high performance based on net production returns in the top 75th percentile. For FY 2017, being a High Performer means that participating organizations raised more than $12.4 million and more than $14 million in net production returns. (Net production returns are calculated by subtracting total fundraising expenses from total production returns.)

“It is such an honor to receive this recognition once again,” said Carol Carlan, president of Sacred Heart Foundation. “At Sacred Heart, we are privileged to be in a position to continue the legacy of care to the sick with special attention to the poor and vulnerable that the Daughters of Charity entrusted to us. This honor would not be possible without the support and generosity from our communities across the region. With their support, we are able to provide life-saving and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, and innovative programs. This enable us to continue healthcare that works, healthcare that is safe, and healthcare that leaves no one behind. And, for that, we are grateful.”
