Dear Friends and Loyal Supporters:
I am extremely honored to serve as the Foundation’s new President and Chief Development Officer. This honor comes with enormous responsibility to you our most generous donors, volunteers, patients and friends. As a Hospital board member for 16 years, I have witnessed the patient-centered care and ministry of Saint Francis, and I look forward to being a part of this incredible institution.
As the Foundation moves ahead in 2012, I pledge my commitment to build upon the enormous success that has been achieved by the entire Foundation Team; both past and present.
As many of you know, my family and I are deeply committed to Saint Francis and we have been for generations. My parents, my four siblings and my three children were born at Saint Francis. Two of my children received amazing, life-saving treatment in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit so we know firsthand the profound affect Saint Francis has in our community – we have personally experienced the world-class care that Saint Francis is known for nationally.
I am proud to state that the Foundation is poised for another record-breaking year in 2012, and I consider it a privilege to be playing a leadership role in its success. In spite of the challenging times ahead, I believe that together we can achieve our goal of BestCare for a lifetime.
If I can be of service to you in any way, please contact me at (860) 714-5855 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
E. Merritt McDonough, Jr.
President, Saint Francis Foundation
Chief Development Officer
